A Cookie is a small file placed on your computer by a Webserver. It serves as your identification card, and cannot be executed as code or deliver viruses. It is uniquely yours and can only be read by the server that gave it to you.
Cookies are primarily used to tell the server that you've returned to a page. This allows things like preferences and customizations to be "remembered" and results in less clicks for you! Some of Veridian's eServices require session cookies to be enabled to function properly.
