What are Cookies?
What are cookies and why are they stored on my computer?
Netscape, Internet Explorer, and other recent browsers have included the ability to let Web sites store simple text files of information on their visitors' computers. Although the etymology of the word is debatable, the term "cookie" is used for these information files. Depending on the Web site, your browser may include the cookie data in future requests to the same server, but will not send it to other Web sites. The data stored in "cookie" files remains between you and the originating Web site for as long as you leave the file on your computer. Cookies allow sites to store user preferences, to supply a user-id and/or a password that the user need not retype in later visits, to keep track of purchases, to track a user's activity while at that site, and other similar capabilities.
Why does this Web site use "cookies"?
The World Wide Web is like an anonymous game of "Marco Polo". You send us an anonymous request for information when you click on a Web link (like yelling "Marco"), and we reply, or yell "Polo" by sending you the information contained in that linked file. You may ask for more information or never yell "Marco" again. By utilizing cookies, as you click to add something to your shopping cart selections, we can retrieve your selections when you are ready to check out and finalize your purchase.
What can cookies do to my machine?
Many users are concerned about security and privacy risks associated with cookies. Some of these concerns are based on a misunderstanding of the way that cookies work. For instance, a Web site can only ask the browser to store information which is already available to the site. Cookies:

Cannot read your hard disk.
Cannot obtain your login email address, or other information
        unless you volunteer the information.
Cannot be "executed" in any way.
Cannot be used to create viruses or destructive programs on your computer.
Cannot be used to fill up your hard drive.

Current browsers will not transmit cookies to sites other than the one(s) that either created the cookie or are in the domain of the site that created the cookie. So rogue sites cannot read or modify cookies from other sites.
