A cookie is a short piece of data that is sent from a web server to a web browser on the user’s machine when the browser visits the server’s site. Cookies allow bel & bow to remember you. If we didn't use cookies you would have to enter your details each time you visited. Cookies are stored on the user’s machine, but it is not an executable program and cannot do anything to your machine. Whenever a web browser requests a file from the same web server that sent the cookie, the browser sends a copy of that cookie back to the server along with the request. In this way, the server knows you have visited before and can co-ordinate your access to different pages on its website. A server cannot find out a name or email address, or anything about a user’s computer, by using cookies.
