What are cookies and pixels?

A cookie is a small text file that the site you visit requests to be saved on your computer. Cookies are used on most sites to give visitors access to various functions. The information in the cookie can be used to follow a user's browsing. This is a prerequisite for, for example, being able to remain logged in, instead of having to log in again each time you change the page on the site.

There are two main types of cookies: first party and third party cookies.

There are two types of first party cookies. One type saves a file for a long time on your computer. It is used, for example, for functions that tell what is new since you last visited the site in question. The second type is called session cookies. While you are browsing a page, the cookie is temporarily stored in your computer's memory, for example to keep track of your chosen language. Session cookies are not stored for a long time on your computer, but disappear when you close your browser.

Third party cookies are usually used by advertising and analytic services, such as Facebook and Google. One type of third party cookie is the tracking pixel. A tracking pixel is a piece of code which is sent from the applications' servers to a partner server and is stored in your web browser, mobile phone or other device when you visit the site. It collects data about you, but are typically constructed with privacy by design. Only the server that sets the data can retrieve the data it collects and the data is often collected on an anonymised basis.
