What are cookies?

Cookies are small text files which are stored to your computer by your web-browser. 

A typical example of how a cookie is used is to store a user ID to make it much quicker for the user to log into a site or order something. An example of what the cookie might contain in this instance would something like "ID=96352398". Popular sites like Amazon.com use this technique.

Nearly every site on the internet uses Cookies. They are used, for a variety of purposes:

  • To personalise pages and remember visitor preferences
  • To analyse visitor behaviour (known as 'analytics')
  • To manage items added to shopping carts in online stores
  • To track people across websites and deliver targeted advertising
