Yes-

No problems. "Cookies" are just the computers way of remembering who
you are. They usually relate to certain preferences on web sites. I
actually think it is a great think to do regularly as a protection of
privacy. Have you ever noticed when you type in a search box it will
remember the last couple searches you have typed that start with those
letters? Or you do not have to log in to your e-mail everytime? Those
are forms of cookies. Some cookies disappear when you close your
browser, other times they stay with you until you decide to clear them
out.

Random-Cookies are used on travel sites like Expedia. They remember
your computer each time you visit and that way they can bump up the
price to get you to buy. If you delete your cookies the price often
lowers. Crazy eh?
