A cookie is a file created by an Internet site for the purposes of storing information about the user, such as the user's preferences while browsing the site. For example, if a user searches for a flight time on an airline's website, the site can create a cookie that contains the user's itinerary. Or the cookie may contain a registration of the pages you visit within the site. This information will be used by the site to customize the display that will be submitted to the user at the next visit.

Personal identity information is information that can be used to identify or contact a person, such as name, e-mail address, home or office address, or phone number. In any case, a Web site can access only the information personally provided by the user. For example, the site may not detect the email address unless the user provides it directly or access other information on the user's computer.
