What are cookies?
A cookie is sent to your computer the first time you visit a site. The next time you visit that site, your computer recognises it and tells the website you’ve returned. The site then ‘knows’ that you have been there before.
Cookies aren’t programs and they can’t harm your computer. Typically, they only contain two pieces of information: a site name and unique user ID. You can read them using the Notebook program on your own computer.
