The next time you visit that same website, your device will check to see if it contains any related cookie(s), and sends any data they have collected back to the website.

Some cookies may also record how long your visit lasts, what pages you visit, how long you spend on the pages you visit, which links you click on, and in some cases, they may also record your page layout, screen size and colour scheme preferences.
