What are cookies?

Cookies are small text files stored by the browser to the user's computer or terminal when using the Internet. Cookies are used for a variety of reasons, the most common of which is the appropriate operation of a website.
With a cookie stored in the user's computer or terminal, the website can remember the user's device and collect information of the pages and functions used with the user's browser. This way companies such as Marimekko can find out how popular individual pages are or what pages are visited rarely so that they can be improved.

Providing services on the Internet practically and technically requires that the cookies are stored. For example, in electronic commerce, it is important that the website remembers the user's visit in the online store and what products the user has viewed and added to the shopping cart. The cookies also make sure that the website remembers the content of the user's shopping cart if, for example, the user navigates backward to view other products.

Cookies cannot be used for determining the user's identity, i.e., name or other personal data. Neither will cookies spread computer viruses or other harmful software, nor can they collect information of the other activities the user uses the computer for.
