A Cookie is a text-only string of information that a website transfers to the Cookie file of the browser on your computer's hard disk so that the website can remember who you are.

A Cookie will typically contain the name of the domain from which the Cookie has come; the "lifetime" of the Cookie; and a value, usually a randomly generated unique number.
