Cookies

August 31, 2007

Cookies are small files, often including an anonymous unique identifier, which are dropped on to your computer’s hard drive when you visit a website.

They provide information to the website on how you use that site, and they hold information on you so that when you revisit a website you don’t have to repeat tasks, such as registration.

Many websites use cookies – however you can set up your browser to refuse cookies, and you can delete them from your machine too.
