A cookie is a file containing an identifier (a string of letters and numbers) that is sent by a web server to your web browser and is stored by your web browser. The next time (and subsequent times) that you visit the website, the PC checks to see if it has a cookie which relates to the website and, if the cookie is present, it is then sent back to the server. The server then recognizes the connection as one that has been made on an earlier occasion and can provide relevant information based on the content of the cookie. It is the website’s way to ask you, automatically, ‘have you been here before’; if you have, then the server will act accordingly.
