What is a Cookie?

A cookie is a small text file downloaded to your browser when you visit a website that enables certain features and functionality. You can think of cookies as providing a ‘memory’ for a website, so that it can recognize users and user activity over time. For instance, a cookie may be used to record where you have paused a video so that you can resume playing it from the same spot later on. Most web pages contain elements from multiple web domains, so when you visit the Site your browser may receive cookies from several sources. This may include third parties that Sparkwork has hired to provide services such as site analytics. Sparkwork also uses web beacons, which are electronic images that may be used in our services or emails and help count visits and understand usage.
