A piece of information from your computer that references what the user has clicked on, or references information that is stored in a text file on the user's hard drive (such as a username). Another way to describe cookies is to say they are tiny files containing information about individual computers that can be used by advertisers to track online interests and tastes. Cookies are also used in the process of purchasing items on the Web. It is because of the cookie that the 'shopping cart' technology works. By saving in a text file, the name, and other important information about an item a user 'clicks' on as they move through a shopping Website, a user can later go to an order form, and see all the items they selected, ready for quick and easy processing.
