Cookies: What They Are, Why You Are In Charge


What is a Cookie?

A "cookie" is the term used to describe a very small text file that many Web sites place on your hard drive (with your permission). The New Hacker's Dictionary compares a "cookie" to the ticket number you get from the dry cleaners. When you come to pick up your clothes, the dry cleaner uses your ticket number to ensure you get the right clothes back. You might want to think of it as an identification code that is uniquely yours and can only be read by the server that gave it to you.

Where is the Cookie? Can I see it?

The text file, or cookie, is kept in a file on your computer hard drive in a subdirectory in your Internet browser. You can easily see your cookies file by opening the "views" or "preferences" menu (which one depends on your Web browser).

If you give me a Cookie what will you know about me?

A cookie cannot, by itself determine your name, email address, phone number or any other personal information about you.

Why do Web sites use Cookies?

Cookies let the Web server know that you've been to the site or page -- before. And they help keep a site valuable to users. In the case of the cookies contain your id and your password so that you do not have log in every time you come on the system.

Do Cookies do anything good for me on this and other systems?

We think so. For example, cookies can help treat you as an individual. Say you personalize a page, or sign up for a bonus points program. By giving you a cookie, they can tell how many points you have and let you know when you've qualified for a prize or special discount. Or, if you'd like them to notify you when they have special sales on items you've indicated a preference for, cookies help to do this.

Of course, it's also possible that you'd elect never to register or give any personal information. In this case, if you never register or leave personal information, then the server will only recognize that someone with your cookie has returned to the Web site.

How can I control Cookies on my browser?

You can adjust your browser to accept all cookies, and you can decide to have it tell you each time a cookie is offered. You can then decide whether to accept that particular Cookie or not. (Some people find this very annoying and elect to simply accept all Cookies, and periodically examine the Cookie file to weed out what they don't want.)

You can elect to receive cookies only from certain selected domain names, such as That way you do not have to log in every time you visit the site.

To do this in Internet Explorer, click on Tools, Internet Options, Privacy. There is a section "to override cookie handling for individual web sites, click the Edit button."

If you have any additional concerns, please let us know.

There is one more setting that I use.  In Internet Explorer, click on Tools, Internet Options, Temporary Internet Files, Settings, I choose to check for newer versions of stored pages, "Every visit to the page." That way if there are any changes or new announcements, you will have them.
