2. What is a cookie?

It allows the website to recognise that user’s device and store some information about the user’s preferences or past actions. It enables UniPupil features and functionality. For example, cookies enable us to identify your device, secure your access to UniPupil and our sites generally, and even help us know if someone attempts to access your account from a different device. Cookies also help us serve relevant ads to you.

3. How does cookie act?

Cookies exploit the idea of ​​exchanging information between the parties involved and keeping track of them, identifying them in an univocal way. We could similarly think of a supermarket, in which it is necessary to book at the counter by taking a number: it has no other meaning than to identify the correspondence between the purchase turn and the number disconnected. In the specific case of the interaction between server and client, the small strings passed between the parts are created and sent by the server in response to a client (usually a web browser) to memorize the status and some parameters, in order to improve the user experience on the site.
