When are cookies created?

Cookies are created when a new web page is loaded or a submit button is selected on a website. The process of writing data to a cookie is completed once the webpage establishes the user as having not disabled cookies. If the user has elected to disable cookies, then the attempt to write data to the cookie will fail, and additional sites the user visits subsequently that rely on the cookie will either have use the default option the user has chosen or ask the user to re-enter the information that would have been stored in the cookie.
