What is a cookie?
A cookie is a small piece of text sent to your browser by a website you visit. It helps the website to remember information about your visit, like your preferred language and other settings. That can make your next visit easier and the site more useful to you. Cookies play an important role. Without them, using the web would be a much more frustrating experience.
Google Analytics: These cookies are used to collect information about how visitors use our site. We use the information to compile reports and to help us improve the site. The cookies collect information in an anonymous form that does not identify a visitor, including the number of visitors to the site, where visitors have come to the site from and the pages they visited. This helps us to improve the way our website works, for example by making sure users are finding what they need easily.
Session ID: A visitor who accesses our website receives a unique ID, the so-called Session ID. The session ID is stored in a cookie on the user page and sent to our website on every page request. The Web site stores the session ID next to user IDs in the database. At each page view, our website receives the session ID from the visitor’s browser. It then examines the session table to find the associated user ID. The user ID determines what permissions the visitor has on our website.
