the site before. This is done on a repeat visit by checking

has been used to visit. It is possible for anyone to set his

your computer to block them.

assist us to analyze the profile of our visitors. For example:
if on a previous visit you went to, say, the news pages then
the server might find this out from your cookie and highlight
news information - which you would probably find interesting
- to you on a second visit.
