WHAT INFORMATION DOES A COOKIE STORE?
Cookies do not usually store sensitive information about you, such as credit card or bank account information, photographs, your ID or personal information, etc. The data stored is technical, personal preferences, content customisation, etc.
The web server does not associate you as a person to your web browser. In fact, if you regularly browse with Internet Explorer and try to browse the same web page with Firefox or Chrome, you will see that the web page does not realise that you are the same person because it is actually associating with the browser, not the person.
