A cookie is a text-only string of information that a website transfers to the cookie file of the browser on your computer’s hard disc so that the website can remember who you are. A cookie will typically contain the name of the domain from which the cookie has come, and a value, usually a randomly generated unique number. Cookies alone cannot be used to identify you.
