What are cookies?
Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer while browsing a website for the purpose of processing and identifying usage data. Cookies are usually very small files and as such they do not contribute to filling up the user's hard disk's storage. Cookies are transferred onto the disk for the purpose of 'storing' a Website's areas that have been visited. This option saves time, as it enables users to reach the previously visited parts of the Website faster.
