Different websites can share tracking cookies, and each website with the same tracking cookie can read the information and write new information into it.

A Tracking Cookie is any cookie used for tracking users’ surfing habits. Tracking Cookies are a form of Tracking Technology. They are typically used by advertisers wishing to analyze and manage advertising data, but they may be used to profile and track user activity more closely.

However, tracking cookies are simply a text file, and far more limited in capability than executable software installed on users’ computers. While installed software can potentially record any data or activity on a computer, cookies are simply a record of visits or activity with a single Website or its affiliated sites.
