A cookie is a small piece of data sent from a website and stored in a user's web browser while that user is browsing the website it came from. The cookie collects data and stores it, and when the user browses the same website using the same browser program in the future, the data stored by the cookie can be retrieved by the website to notify the owner about the user's previous activity.

The data stored by the Cookie varies depending upon it's purpose and the type of website that sends it. A simple static web site will send different Cookies to those sent by an e commerce site. This is because Cookies can have varying functions, based upon their use and purpose. Sites requiring that users log in use Cookies which those sites that do not require users to log in do not need to use.

It is important to remember that Cookies are not viruses, spyware or other malware that can infect or cause harm to your machine.
