Cookies are small pieces of data that are stored and used to improve the experience of using a site.
For example, they can temporarily remember your browsing preferences to avoid selecting the language every time, thus making subsequent visits more comfortable and intuitive.
Or they can be used to carry out "anonymous surveys" on how users navigate through the site, so that it can then be improved starting from real data.

Cookies are not viruses or programs. Cookies are only data saved in text form in the form "variable = value" (example: "dataAccessoSito = 2014-01-20,14: 23: 15").
