    1. They make the interaction between users and web sites faster and easier. Without cookies, it would be very difficult for a website to allow visitor to fill up a shopping cart or to remember the user's preferences or registration details for a future visit.
    2. Web sites use cookies to save loading time and make the browsing experience more efficient and enjoyable, also adjust web sites to users devices. Web sites often use cookies for the purposes of collecting statistic data about their users.
    3. Cookies allow web sites to monitor their users web surfing habits and profile them for marketing purposes (i.e. to find out which products or services they are interested in and send them targeted advertisements). Cookies are pretty useful - they help maintain user's session. You don't have to type in login and password while you are checking (i.e. e-shop offer.)
  5. Cookies that are stored in the computer's memory only during a user's browsing session and are automatically deleted from the user's computer when the browser is closed. These cookies usually store a session ID that is not personally identifiable to users, allowing the user to move from page to page without having to log-in repeatedly. They are widely used by commercial web sites (for example, to keep track of items that a consumer has added to a shopping cart).
    1. Session cookies are never written on the hard drive and they do not collect any information from the user's computer. Session cookies expire at the end of the user's browser session and can also become no longer accessible after the session has been inactive for a specified length of time, usually 20 minutes.
    2. Permanent, persistent, or stored cookies
      Cookies that are stored on the user's computer and are not deleted when the browser is closed. Permanent cookies can retain user preferences for a particular web site, allowing those preferences to be used in future browsing sessions. Permanent cookies can be used to identify individual users, so they may be used by web sites to analyse users' surfing behaviour within the web site. These cookies can also be used to provide information about numbers of visitors, the average time spent on a particular page and generally the performance of the web site. They are usually configured to keep track of users for a prolonged period of time, in some cases many years into the future.
  6. Flash cookies
    If you have Adobe Flash installed on your computer, small files may be stored on your computer by websites that contain Flash media, such as video clips. These files are known as Local Shared Objects (LSOs) or Flash cookies. They can be used for the same purposes as regular cookies (properly called HTTP cookies). Flash cookies can also back up the data that is stored in a regular cookie. When you delete cookies using your browser controls, your Flash cookies are not affected. So a website that served a cookie to you may recognise you on your next visit if it backed up its now-deleted cookie data to a Flash cookie. You can control Flash cookies. Adobe's website offers tools to control Flash cookies on your computer and users of the Firefox browser can also get an add-on to detect and delete Flash cookies.
