What Are Cookies

Cookies are small data files which are stored on a website visitor’s computer. They are designed to hold a modest amount of data specific to a visitor and the website, and can be accessed either by the web server or the visitor’s computer. This allows the server to deliver a page tailored to a particular visitor, or the page itself can contain some script which is aware of the data in the cookie and so is able to carry information from one visit to the website (or related site) to the next.

For more general information on cookies see the ‘All about cookies org article’
