Cookies are installed by the request issued by a web-server to a browser. Cookies once installed have a fixed lifespan, remaining passive, meaning they do not contain software, viruses or spyware and will not access the information on the hard drive of the user whose equipment was installed.
A cookie consists of two parts: the name and content or value of the cookie.
Cookies are NOT viruses! They use plain text formats. They are not made up of pieces of code so they cannot be executed nor can they self-run. As a result, you cannot duplicate or replicate on other networks to run or replicate again. Because they cannot perform these functions, they cannot be considered viruses.

They memorize the user’s interests in order to deliver relevant advertising.
