The information is then sent back to the server each time the browser requests a page from the server. This enables a web server to identify and track web browsers.

.Net Session Cookie

 

Expires When you close the browser 

This is the standard .Net session cookie which is used to help store session data. Basically the server uses this to identify you while you are visiting the site so that it doesn't confuse you with other people that are viewing the site at the same time. For example, you could be filling in the contact form while someone else is checking out the portfolio, for obvious reasons it is important not to confuse the visitors.
