A "cookie" is a small text file that is created by your browser and can only be used by the website that created it, in this case Mindsurf Networks. Since the file is merely a short piece of data - not a program, plug-in, or piece of code - it cannot deliver a virus or access other information on your computer.
When you change your cookies settings, you can choose to be prompted before a site puts a cookie on your computer. If you select the prompt or notification option, you can decide whether to allow or disallow each cookie and have control over which ones are saved on your computer.
