"Cookies are text files used to give feedback from the user to the server. When performing some actions with a web resource (viewing web links, downloading files, etc.), these actions are registered in a cookie that is secretly sent by the server to the user’s computer. With this web resource, the server has the ability to find out what actions the user has taken on previous visits to this web resource."  - https://www.digitalforensics.com/blog/an-overview-of-web-browser-forensics/
