A cookie is a piece of information sent to a browser (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari, etc) by a Web Server. The browser then returns that information to the Web server. This is how some Web pages "remember" your previous visits. For example, an e-commerce site might use a cookie to remember which items you've placed in your online shopping cart. Cookies can also store user preference information, log-in data, etc.

Cookies are required only if you want your browser to remember items that you have placed in your shopping cart but have not yet purchased. If you do not have cookies enabled, then any items you’ve placed in your cart but have not yet purchased will be "forgotten" once you’ve left our site. cookies are not available to other companies and will not retrieve any personal information such as name, address, and credit card information from your computer.
