Cookies – What are they?
Cookies are small files which are stored on a user’s computer. They are designed to hold a modest amount of data specific to a particular client and website, and can be accessed either by the web server or the client computer. This allows the server to deliver a page tailored to a particular user, or the page itself can contain some script which is aware of the data in the cookie and so is able to carry information from one visit to the website (or related site) to the next.
Wix websites use 2 types of cookies:
Session (Transient) cookies: these cookies are erased when you close your browser, and do not collect information from your computer. They typically store information in the from of a session identification that does not personally identify the user.

These cookies are used to collect identifying information about the user, such as web surfing behaviour or user preferences for a specific site.
