Common Tracking Methods

HTTP Cookies

HTTP cookies or “browser cookies” are small pieces of data sent between your Web browser and a Web site, commonly used to track users, even across multiple Web sites. Cookies can be used to help build a profile about you based on the links you’ve clicked and other actions you’ve taken on various Web sites. These profiles can then be used to serve personalized advertisements and search results. However, cookies can also be used for non-tracking purposes, such as storing user settings or keeping you logged in.
