What information does a cookie store?
Cookies do not usually store your sensitive information like credit card or bank details, photographs, your ID or personal information, etc. The data they store is technical, personal preferences, customization of contents, etc.
The web server does not associate it with a person but with their web browser. In fact, if you usually browse with Internet Explorer and try to browse the same website with Firefox or Chrome, you will see that the web does not realize that you are the same person because it is associated with the browser, not the person.
