you as the webpage cannot determine where the cookie is stored because that would be bad security what happens with cookies is your webpage sends the cookie back along with the webpage to the users browser. depending on which browser the user is using and what their preferences the browser may accept or decline the cookie. the browser will store the cookie wherever it wants. If it is a cookie just for one session it wont need to store it on the harddrive because it can keep it in memory but if it is for say 30 days some browsers store it as small text files on the users PC. when the user requests another page from the same site the browser does send along any cookies for that site. hope that explains stuff better
