What Are Cookies?
A cookie is a small file, often including a unique identifier, that is sent to your device's browser from a web server and is stored on your device's hard drive.
They are widely used in order to make websites work, or work more efficiently, as well as to provide information to the owners of the site. Each website can send its own cookie to your browser if your browser's preferences allow it, but (to protect your privacy) your browser only permits a website to access the cookies it has already sent to you, not the cookies sent to you by other websites. Many websites do this whenever a user visits their website in order to track online traffic flows.
