Cookie information

Cookies are really harmless text files that certain web sites will place onto the hard drive of your computer. Your Internet Browser will then load the information into the memory while you are visiting their site. The Cookie itself, takes up very little space and acts as an identification card for the visiting site. You can compare this to visiting your favourite restaurant where your food server will usually remember certain aspects of how you like your food prepared and what you usually order. This information would obviously be based upon his familiarity of your prior visits. Cookies act in a similar manner and do not contain viruses, as a virus must be executable file. Let us look at some of the ways that Cookies act as an identification card.

Why do Websites Sites Use Cookies?

There are numerous reasons why websites use cookies. These range from statistical purposes to assertain how many visitors came to the site and this can be broken down further to monitor how many new visitors or repeating visitors visited the site.Furthermore, how often did they visit. The Website creates a unique ID for each visitor and stores this information into a database.

Cookies can be used to store your personal preferences, referred to as customisations, that you set while navigating their site. For instance, if you visit yahoo.com, you can sign in to create your own personal yahoo page and customise it according to your personal preferences.

Online Shopping sites use cookies to keep track of items that you add to their shopping carts and quick checkout options. The cookie will keep track of every item that you add to the shopping cart while you continue to browse through different pages or entirely different sections of their site. Every item added is stored within the Web site’s database along with a unique ID value that has been assigned to you. Therefore, when you select the checkout option, the site automatically knows what items are in your cart by retrieving those selections from its database. This is the reason why sites such as Amazon or eBay will prompt you to enable cookies in case you have disabled them.

Cookies also provide web designers and programmers with a quick and convenient method of keeping their site content fresh and up to date according to the interests of their users. Modern web servers use Cookies for back-end interaction, allowing them to securely store any personal data that the user has entered within a site. On return visits the user only has to enter partial information to access their account and purchases can be made quicker as their payment information is on file regarding their previous purchases.

To conclude, cookies are small text files, they cannot damage your computer system or any files on your hard drive. They cannot transmit viruses as viruses are executable in nature. Some users simply may just not want their personal data to be monitored and tracked, this is one of the primary reasons why many people just disable accepting cookies.
