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.

This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the same HeadStuff.org page, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the HeadStuff features that you customised.
