To Know About "Cookies"
Why are cookies used
1. To prevent you from seeing the
same advertisement twice by acknowledging you're a returning visitor and not a new visitor
A cookie is a piece of information sent by a Web server to a user's browser. Cookies may include information such as login or registration identification, user preferences, online "shopping cart" information, etc. The browser saves the information, and sends it back to the Web server whenever the browser returns to the Web site. The Web server may use the cookie to customize the display it sends to the user, or it may keep track of the different pages within the site that the user accesses for internal use such as determining which pages are popular and which pages are not. There is no personal information being exchanged between the browser and your computer and the Web site which dropped the cookie. The only piece of identification that could be traced to you is the IP address, but this is not stored by the cookie for use on any other site but the one you're visiting. This is in contrast to spyware/adware which tracks your browsing habits across all sites, stores your IP address and may attach a user identification number to your IP address for future reference. Browsers may be configured to alert the user when a cookie is being sent, or to refuse to accept cookies. If you set your browser to disallow cookies you may not be able to access certain sites. Cookies, unlike spyware/adware, do not require a special program to remove them. In fact they don't require any program at all to remove them. You can simply delete them or use your browser's "Delete Cookies" feature to remove them.
