A cookie is a small piece of information that is sent to your browser when you access a site. There are two kinds of cookies, session cookies and persistent cookies. A session cookie is a line of text that is stored temporarily in your computer’s memory. Because a session cookie is never saved, it is erased from the memory of your computer as soon as you close your browser.
