How do computer cookies work?
A computer cookie is a piece of data which often includes an unique identifier, that is sent to your browser from a web site you visit, stores as a file on your computer, identifies you as a unique user and track your web usage. Computer cookies can do everything from monitoring your visit throughout web sites, tracking how many times you've visited the site, how long you've been on the site, your log-in information at a particular page to remembering important information about your computer.
Cookies types
There are two commonly known types of cookies. One is called a "session" or "non-persistent cookie." It is a cookie that only exists as long as your session on the web site lasts and expires as soon as you leave the web site. It is used to facilitate your activities within that site.
The second type of cookie is a "persistent cookie". It exists beyond the life of your session and may live for months or years. A persistent cookie is created in order to recognize users when they return to a website. It enables the site to offer a customized experience tailored to that user - such as remembering your name and password on protected login pages.

Your computer records everything you do while working on the computer or surfing the Internet. So, anyone who can access your computer is able to know your web surfing history, images and videos you have seen, documents and files you have just opened and many others.

Where are cookies stored?

Cookie data is stored on the user's hard drive. The filename is different for each platform. For example, on Windows machines, cookie data is stored in *.txt files.

How long do cookies live?

A web site may set an expiration date for a cookie it delivers. If no expiration date is specified, the cookie is deleted when the user closes the browser.

What are computer cookies used for?

Computer cookies allow sites to track their visitors so that they can know how many visitors have viewed the site, how many repeat visitors they have received.
Computer cookies also allow a site to store user preferences and the retrieval of this information for viewing customization of movie listings, weather and other local information.
E-commerce sites use computer cookie usage for things like shopping carts and checkout options. Computer cookies allow these sites to recognize the items you put into your cart, to monitor you as you continue shopping.

Can computer cookies be harmful?

In one of their malevolent forms, cookies from one web site might track your visits to a different web site. For example, most of the ads that you see on web sites do not come from the site that you are viewing, but from sites that provide ads to many sites. When the advertising site displays the ad, it can send cookies on your computer. This lets the advertising company track your web usage over a range of sites and profile your browsing habits.
Cookies can threat to your privacy as they can store sensitive information like your name and password on protected login pages, preferences, account information and choices you have made on the site. So, even if you clean browser history, cookies like a map will show your surfing preferences, habits, passwords, etc. Even if the cookies don't contain such information they clearly show that you visited the sites from which they came.
