A cookie is a small amount of data, which often includes an anonymous unique identifier that is sent to your browser from a website computer and stored on your computer's hard drive. Each website can send its own cookie to your browser if your browsers preferences allow it but, depending on how your browser is set up to protect your privacy, it may only permit a web site to access the cookies it has already sent to you, not the cookies sent to you by other sites. Cookies allow us to store information on the server to help make the web experience better for you and to conduct site analysis and website performance reviews. Most web browsers are set up to accept cookies, although you can reset your browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent.
