A cookie is a small quantity of data, often containing a unique anonymous identification code, that a Web server sends to your browser (the software that allows you to access the internet) and then stores on your device's hard drive. The cookie is then reread and recognised only by the website that sent it every time a connection is made. This facilitates repeat visits and increases the usefulness of the website. Cookies are important because they make your experience of the internet much smoother and more interactive.
