The information stored in cookies can be used to personalise the user experience when accessing a website. Cookies are created when a user's browser loads a particular website, which would send information to the browser and in turn create a text file. Every time the user returns to the same website the browser retrieves and sends the file created to the website's server. Besides the cookies created by the website the user is browsing, there are cookies made by other websites that run ads, widgets, or other elements on the page being loaded.
