Cookies and web beacons

What are cookies?

A cookie is a text file placed on your computer by your browser, on behalf of a website you visited. Cookies are harmless: They cannot contain viruses or other malicious code. They are typically used to store information you entered earlier, so that you don't have to enter it again, or to obtain information about how often you visit a website.

Cookies can only be read by the websites that placed them, and contain only information that website placed in them, so they cannot be used to obtain personal information like e-mail addresses.
