Cookies Policy for the Data Quackery Website
A HTTP cookie (also called web cookie, Internet cookie, browser cookie or simply cookie) is a small piece of data sent from a website and stored in a user's web browser while the user is browsing that website. Every time the user loads the website, the browser sends the cookie back to the server to notify the website of the user's previous activity. Cookies were designed to be a reliable mechanism for websites to remember information (such as items in a shopping cart) or to record the user's browsing activity (including clicking particular buttons, logging in or recording which pages were visited by the user as far back as months or years ago).
Although cookies cannot carry viruses and cannot install malware on the host computer, tracking cookies and especially third-party tracking cookies are commonly used as ways to compile long-term records of individuals' browsing histories. This is a potential privacy concern, so it is important that you know about the Cookies used on this website.
