Definition of Cookie Category

The various kinds of data that a website can gather from its users can be categorized using cookie terms.

When a visitor views or interacts with a website, the categories can be used to show what kinds of data, such as personally identifiable information (PII), may be collected.

This helps website owners abide by privacy laws and enables visitors to decide for themselves if they feel safe sharing any information with the website.
