Cookies are small files downloaded to your computer when you visit a webpage. That is, an information packet containing data determined by the server, which the server sends to the browser and the browser back to server with every request.

Browsers usually store cookies in plain text files - cookie files -, thus they remain available even after the user exits and restarts the browser.
Cookies serve a multitude of purposes; their functions and their expiration times are listed in the table below.
