Cookies are a feature of web browser software that allows web servers to recognise the computer used to access a website. Cookies are small files containing an identifier (a string of letters and numbers) that is sent by a web server to a web browser and is stored by the browser. The identifier is then sent back to the server each time the browser requests a page from the server.
Cookies do not typically contain any information that personally identifies a user, but personal information that is stored about users may be linked to the information stored in and obtained from cookies.
Cookies can be used by web servers to identify and track users as they navigate different pages on a website and to identify users returning to a website. This helps to personalise the website for each user.
