WHAT IS A COOKIE?
A cookie is a small piece of data that is sent (usually in
the form of a text file) from a website to the user’s device,
such as a computer, smartphone or tablet. The purpose of a
cookie is to provide a reliable mechanism to “remember” user
behaviour (keeping track of previous actions), e.g.
remembering the contents of an online shopping cart, and
actions the user performed whilst browsing when not signed up
or logged into their online account.
The group does not necessarily know the identity of the user
of the device but does see the behaviour recorded on the
device. Multiple users of the same device would not
necessarily be distinguishable from one another. Cookies
could, however, be used to identify the device and, if the
device is linked to a specific user, the user would also be
identifiable. For example, a device registered to an app (FNB,
WesBank, RMB, etc.).

First-party cookies are directly stored by the website (or
domain) visited by a user. These cookies allow website owners
to collect analytics, data, remember language settings or

Third-party cookies are created by domains separate/different
from the website (or domain) that the user is visiting. These
cookies are usually used for online advertising, cross-site
tracking; and are accessible on any website that loads the
third party’s server code, e.g. when a user visits a site and
clicks a “like” button, this could be stored in a cookie and,
upon visiting the third-party site, the cookie will be used to
action the request.
For example, a user browses online for a specific product,
finds an advert of interest, clicks the advert and thereafter
closes their browser. Several hours later, the user notices
advertising of the same product that they were browsing for
