Cookies are small pieces of data that are stored by a user’s web browser on the hard drive of a user’s computer.

Cookies are usually used to store information such as products you have clicked to add to your shopping cart. They also allow you to store your password without having to constantly re- enter it. The shopping cart cannot “tally” a total without using Cookies to remember what you have selected to purchase so far.
