Cookies are very small text files that are transmitted to users’ browsers from the accessed websites. Cookies help the website memorize the information concerning the access made by anonymous users, including banners and file setup. As a result of using cookies, users can access the website later while still maintaining the setup that is more useful to them. Because cookies play such an important role, it may become inconvenient to use a website without cookies.

These web log systems use cookies and log files to report statistics on website use by analyzing the information obtained from anonymous users, without identifying the personal information of individual visitors.

In addition, users may disallow cookies from being stored at all. Most browsers provide users with the function to manage cookies based on their own needs. In some browsers, users can set up rules for managing cookies on a site-by-site basis, thereby granting users more fine-grained control over privacy.
