About Cookies

A cookie is a small amount of data (which often includes a unique identifier) that is sent to a user's computer or mobile phone from a website and is stored on the hard drive of a device.

Your browser only permits a website to access the cookies it has already sent to you, not the cookies sent to you by other websites.
