Everytime you visit a Website, your web browser stores the URL on your hard disk.That bit of data is called a cookie.Cookie store things like user ID`s so that you don’t have to retype them everytime you want to access a particular secured site.They also record your prefences when using a particular site.One of the most common uses of cookies is for banner-ad rotation.The site recognizes you through a cookie when you arrive and then displays a banner you haven`t seen before.

The good news is, cookies help purveyors of Web-Based products and services to know your prefences.The bad news is, your privacy is at least somewhat compromised.You can view the cookies that have been stored on your computer any time you want to.

You can have your browser disable cookies or warn you before accepting a cookie.Look for the cookie option in your browser on the Option or Preferences menu.

I hope that my post benefited you in any way possible.If you have more information that you want to share or leave any comments and suggestion you can do so in the comments section.Thanks
