There are several different types of cookies that all play a different part in either making your life easier, or helping the web site owner to provide content relevant to you.

What are Cookies used for?

Cookies are used for many things, such as remembering your colour preferences, username and password for a site, items in your shopping trolley, when you last visited and much more.

Cookie Uses (some examples):

Web pages have no memory of their own. A user going from page to page will be treated by the web site as a completely new visitor to each page without the use of a cookie. Session cookies give the web page some short term memory, and enable the web site you are visiting to keep track of your movement as you move around the site so you don't get asked for the same information more than once. Cookies allow you to move around the web site  quickly and easily without having to re-authenticate or reprocess each new area you visit.

The most common example of session cookie use, is the shopping cart feature of any e-commerce site. When you add an item to your cart on one page, it is written to the session cookie, when you move to another page and select another item, it is added to the session cookie. When you select open or view cart all the items you selected will be visible. Without session cookies (either because you deleted it or chose not to accept them in your browser), the cart would be empty and shopping on-line would become impossible.

Persistent cookies can remember things much longer depending upon the expiry date that was set when the cookie was written, and persistent cookies will often be used to remember things such as your site colour preferences, home page, user name and password, customer number, last time to visited and so on.

These can then be used the next time you visit to save you having to re-enter or select them every time you visit the site.

This type of cookie is also used by sites like Google Analytics, to analyse how often people visit, whether they are first time visitors, how long they remain on a page etc. This information is then used by the site owner to understand how visitors react to the site pages and content, and allows them to modify their site to better suit the users.  

You can adjust your session cookies through the settings feature of your browser.
