permission to place on your computer's hard drive. If you accept a cookie, then your
browser adds the text in a small file. The purpose of the file is to let us know when you
visit QuitSmokingSupport.com. This text, by itself, merely tells us that a previous
visitor has returned; it doesn't tell us anything else (who you are, your email address,
or anything personal). They are similar to the stamp placed on the back of a child's hand
when visiting a fair or carnival; they merely indicate that you have visited before.
