What are cookies?
Cookies are pieces of information generated by a Web server and stored in the user's computer without their consent or knowledge, ready for future access.
In most cases, not only does the storage of personal information into a cookie go unnoticed, so does access to it. Web servers automatically gain access to relevant cookies whenever the user establishes a connection to them, usually in the form of Web requests.

By using cookies, a website can track what links you click on, the ads you respond to, and all sorts of other information.
Not all cookies are bad. As a matter of fact, most cookies store harmless but useful information.
Cookies allow user-side customization of Web information. If you sometimes visit 'finance.yahoo.com' you may notice that this page remembers your recent stock quotes. It's done through cookies.
Another example: cookies can be used to store shopping lists of items a user has selected while browsing through a virtual shopping mall.
