A cookie is a file created by an Internet site in order to store information about the user in the system, such as the preferences expressed by the user while browsing the site. For example, if the user searches for a flight time on an airline website, the site can create a cookie that contains the user’s itinerary. Or the cookie may contain a record of the pages visited within the site. This information will be used by the site to customize the view that will be presented to the user on the next visit.

Personal identity information can also be stored in cookies. Personal identity information is information that can be used to identify or contact a person, such as their name, email address, home or office address, or telephone number.

For example, the site cannot detect the e-mail address, unless the user provides it directly, nor can he access other information on the user’s computer.

Permanent and temporary cookies
