About cookies

A cookie is a small text file a web page server places on the hard drive of every computer that links to its website. The cookie carries an identification code, which can only be read by the server that generated it, to enable the server to recognise returning users.

The cookie may also store a record of which information the user has submitted to that website, such as personal details or personalised settings. The server can then reuse this information to prevent users having to re-enter information.
