In terms of the internet, a cookie is a small text file which is placed on your computer when you access a web site.

Cookies will not reveal your identity, or indeed any personal information.

In most cases, on the first occasion that you go to a web site that uses cookies, a cookie will be placed on your computer. Next time you go to that web site, your device (computer/laptop/mobile/tablet/etc.) will search for a cookie that corresponds to this web site, and will send the information held in the cookie back to the site. From there, the web site can identify that you have visited previously. This allows some web sites to alter the information presented to you based on this fact. Using cookies, some web sites may also record how much time you spend viewing certain pages of the site, the pages/links you have selected, and save preferences you have chosen during your visit.

For the most part, cookies bring many benefits to the internet user, especially if you visit some web sites on a regular basis - your preferences are saved so that you don’t have to re-enter or re-select details or options. Additionally, cookies help to improve internet shopping, i.e they are used to remember the items you have placed in your basket before checking out.
