What are cookies?
A cookie is a piece of text that a web server can store on the user’s hard drive.
Cookies allow websites to store information on the user’s device and to retrieve such information at a later date. They are not programs and therefore cannot “do” anything on the computer. A website can only retrieve the information that it has placed on the computer. It does not have access to any other cookie files or to any other information on the computer.
For example, the text file or cookie may be an individual identification number that the website assigns to a computer. This identification number is sent to the website if the computer accesses the website again. This is how website operators collate their visitor numbers and statistics.
