Cookies and Why We Use Them
Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.
One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize S2E pages, or submit a contact form via S2E Site or services, a cookie helps S2E to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the same S2E website, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the S2E features that you customized.
