Are there only cookies?
There may be web sites that use other forms of storage similar to cookies but with greater capacity, such as other forms of local data storage on the user’s computer, for example:

  • LocalStorage and HTML5 sessionStorage: Storage area that the web can use in the user’s computer. These can normally be deleted by deleting browsing history.
  • Flash “Local Shared Objects” (the “isolated storage” of Silverlight): They are stored within the Microsoft folder with the user profile. You have to find the folder and delete it.  (For example: vimeo videos). Flash is used to incorporate multimedia into a web site, so it stores files on the user’s computer.
  • A web beacon tracks your browsing, by inserting a mini-image that you don’t even notice. When you browse the web, it is loaded along with the page and the server from which photos are downloaded. It records the time the page was opened, or the number of times it was opened.

These files are more intrusive than cookies, as they are more complicated to delete, they store more information, and are independent of the browser. We do not use these kinds of storage.
