The principle of cookies makes it possible to distinguish users and store specific information about them. For example, a cookie lets the server know what language settings you selected on your last visit or what items you had saved in your shopping cart. Cookies therefore facilitate personalisation.
Various statistics and other measurement systems also work on the principle of cookies, which store the visitor's identifier, sometimes the time or source of the visit and other information in the cookie. By using the same identifier on other sites, they can then track and monitor the user's behaviour. Cookies are therefore a prerequisite for functional web analytics.
Cookies are also used to store confirmation that the user is logged in (e.g. to the e-shop, administration, social network, etc.). We are talking about the so-called authentication cookie here. Without it, the server wouldn't know that the user has already logged in and authenticated, and would require it on every subsequent visit to the site.
In any case, the cookie cannot provide the server with any data from your hard drive, nor does it reveal your email address or any other information about the browser user.
