Cookies can make it easier to use a Web site by allowing servers to access certain information quickly:

  • Session cookies can be used to help a user's browser navigate a Web site more smoothly and may show up if the user comes from a Web site with which the subsequent Web site has some relationship (for example, a Web site of an affiliated company) and can give helpful information. 
  • Persistent cookies can be used to customize a Web site for a user, such as by storing passwords, preferences, and registration and account information so that users do not have to reenter this information each time they visit a Web site.
