Cookies are small text files that a website can send to your computer. A cookie can be thought of as an internet users identification card, which tells a website when the user has returned. Cookies are not computer programs and cannot read other information saved on your hard drive. They can’t be used to send viruses or take a user’s email address.

Cookies make the interaction between users and websites faster and easier. Without cookies, it would be very difficult for a website to allow a visitor to fill up a shopping cart or remember a users preferences or registration details for a future visit. The Goby website uses cookies to allow customers to move from one part of the website to another and to add items to the shopping cart without having to login repeatedly. Cookies make the online shopping experience a smoother and easier process.
