The Cookies We Set
When you submit data through a form such as those found on contact pages or comment forms cookies may be set to remember your user details for future correspondence. This is part of the "session" cookie which is set when you entered the site. A "session" cookie is also called a transient cookie, a cookie that is erased when you close the Web browser. The session cookie is stored in temporary memory and is not retained after the browser is closed. Session cookies do not collect information from your computer. They typically will store information in the form of a session identification that does NOT personally identify you.
