What are Cookies
'Cookies' are not actually programs, but simply small text files that are stored by your browser (e.g. Firefox or Internet Explorer) on your computer or mobile phone. Normally they will contain two pieces of information: a site name and unique user ID and they allow websites to store such things as user preferences, thus enabling the site to recognise a user and respond appropriately.
How do I turn cookies off?
