Why are cookies needed?
Cookies are needed to make websites work better. For example, when you add an item to your shopping cart on the Amazon website the contents of the shopping cart are stored in the cookie. Another example would be when you log into a webmail service such as Hotmail or Gmail a cookie is generated that confirms you are logged in. Cookies do lots of different jobs, like letting you navigate between pages efficiently, remembering your preferences, and generally improving the user experience. They can also help to ensure that adverts you see online are more relevant to you and your interests. When you log off the cookie is deleted. This means if someone goes back to your webmail address they will not be able to read your emails.
