Cache is simply a collection of data downloaded to help display a web page. For example, when opening up websites with large pictures and videos, it might take some time to load and who likes waiting around for that? A web cache system stores copies of these files to help speed up the loading time of the site on subsequent visits. No personal data is stored via cookies or caches. However, users can clear cookies and caches quite easily through the preference/privacy option on their web browser.
