What are cookies?

Cookies are small text files that are used to store small pieces of information. Cookies are stored on your device when the website is loaded on your browser. When the website is later loaded on your browser again, your browser will send the previously stored cookies back so the information can be used.

Think of it like the order number you get at some restaurants – The cookie is the little plastic number thing you’re supposed to put on the corner of the table but fidget with instead. You get the cookie when you make an order. Later on, when the server comes out with whatever passes for food in their establishment, they use the cookie to know who is supposed to get it. In this way they can make sure the right “food” gets to the right table. (This doesn’t seem to help ensure the “food” is actually what you ordered, though…)
