Persistent Client-State HTTP Cookies are files containing information about visitors to a Web site (e.g., user name and preferences). This information is provided by the visitor during the first visit to a Web server. The server records this information in a text file and stores this file on the visitor's hard drive. When the visitor accesses the same web site again, the server looks for the cookie and configures itself based on the information provided.
