What are Cookies?

A cookie is a small text file that is placed on your hard disk by a web page server to uniquely identify your browser or to store information in your browser. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. A “web beacon” links web pages to servers and may be used to transmit information collected through cookies back to a web server. Most cookies expire after a certain period of time depending on what they are used for.

Code Complete uses both first-party cookies (which are set by our website when it is being visited) and third-party cookies (which are set by a server located outside the domain of our website). If you would like to learn more about this practice and to know your choices about not having this information collected and shared with third parties, visit http://networkadvertising.org/ or review our "Managing your Cookies" section further below.
