A cookie is a packet of information that the given web server sends to the browser, and then the browser sends it back to the server for every request directed to the server. Cookies are “passive”, i.e. they do not contain executable files, viruses or spyware, and they do not access the data of the user’s hard drive.

9. Security and privacy factors related to ethnicity
Cookies are NOT viruses! Cookies use a plain text type format, they do not consist of code snippets, so they cannot be run automatically. As a consequence, they cannot be copied or matched in other networks for re-run. Since they are not able to perform these functions, they cannot be considered as programs (thus not viruses either).
However, cookies can also be used for negative purposes.
Since they store information about the user’s needs and navigation history, they can even be used as spyware on a given website. Accordingly, many antivirus programs permanently delete cookies during various computer scanning processes (full system scan, real-time protection, etc.). In general, browsers have data security settings that allow the acceptance of cookies placed by certain pages, as well as the determination of their validity period and their automatic deletion.
