What are cookies?

Cookies are very small text files placed on your computer by a web server when you view websites that use cookies, one of which is this website. The browser stores a file with a unique ID tag (a string of letters and numbers) which can track and keep information on your movements within the site and any information you may have voluntarily given while visiting the website, such as your email address.

Cookies are not viruses. They are plain-text files that cannot be self-executed or self-replicated, so they cannot be harmful on their own.

A cookie includes only the name of the server the cookie was sent from, the lifetime of the cookie, and a random number value. The website uses this number to recognize a user when they return to a site or browse from page to page. The cookie alone cannot be used to identify the user.
