How Information is Collected
Cookies are small, usually encrypted text files, located in your browser's directory. They are used by publishers on the Internet to help users navigate websites and perform certain functions. This is how some sites know when you return and keep you logged in, or will display a particular page that you like.
A cookie is a small amount of information sent from a web server to your computer. Cookies are created when your browser loads a particular website. The website sends information to the browser which then creates a text file. Every time the user goes back to the same website, the browser retrieves and sends this file to the web server.
