Cookies are small files loaded onto a user’s PC which “communicate” with a web server. These cookies store a “profile” which lets the web server know certain demographics about the PC being used (possibly hardware components and/or software used) as well as specific “preferences” for the PC user. This allows the web server to custom tailor the content viewed on the web site. This could be to display information obtained from the previous session or to show you what would pertain to your session and not inundate you with graphics or verbiage that you would not be able to use or be interested in. Cookies have expiration dates. Some expire at the end of the session and some expire in 30 years.
