WHAT ARE COOKIES AND WHAT DO THEY DO?
Cookies are basically the files that are located on the user’s system and they are created when the user visits any website. These cookies are user specific because they carry the information of the user regarding the interaction with a particular website. What happens is that when a user visits a particular website, that website records the information about the visit to that particular webpage and packages it in the form of a cookie which is then delivered to the web browser that the user uses. This cookie is stored in the web browser for later use. So, whenever the user visits the webpage next time, the cookie that was stored on the website is transferred to the webpage and when the server demands a particular web page, the cookie is sent to the hard disk of the computer. These cookies then show customized pages to the user on the basis of the recorded information of the earlier visits.
