1. What is a cookie?
A cookie is a text file of a small size stored by your web browser that allows MyHowBook or any third party to recognize you. Cookies can be used for various purposes like (1) to facilitate certain functions; (2) to store your preferences; (3) to provide analytics; and (4) to help ad delivery and behavioral advertising.
Cookies are of two types: session cookies and persistent cookies. A session cookie is a cookie with short expiry time and gets erased automatically when you close your browser.
