WHAT ARE COOKIES?
A cookie comprises a file bearing an identifier (a strand of alphabetic character* and numerals) that is stationed by a web server to a web browser and is stacked away by the browser. In other words, it is a text file containing small amounts of information which a server downloads to your personal computer (PC) or mobile when you visit a website. The identifier is then sent back to the server each time the browser requests a page from the server.
Cookies may be either “persistent” cookies or “session” cookies. A persistent cookie will be stashed away by a web browser and will remain valid until its set expiration date, unless erased by the user before the expiry date; a session cookie, on the other hand, will expire at the end of the user session, when the web browser is closed.

It may be connected by web servers to recognize and follow clients as they explore distinctive pages on a site and distinguish users coming back to a site.
