"Cookies" are small files or records placed on your computer’s hard drive to distinguish you from other visitors to a website. The use of cookies is a standard practice among websites to collect or track information about your activities while using a particular website. Some websites use persistent cookies, which are placed on your computer and remain there until you delete them.
