A cookie is a very small piece of information that a website stores to save and collect basic information. That being said, cookies are not essential to the operation of my website. It is not a commercial site as nothing can be bought online and there is no subscription/sign-up service. I like to keep things simple.
The cookies my website uses do not collect any sensitive information such as your name, postal address, e-mail address, or any other contact details. These cookies are simply used to collect information about how visitors use my site and how many do so. The cookies collect information in a completely anonymous manner. That’s all there is to it.
