The last one is a random number generated by your computer, so we can tell the difference between one person visiting 10 pages, and 10 people visiting 1 page each. It expires when your session ends. The number is made up each time, and has nothing to do with you personally. This standard for the majority of websites.
You can always block cookies but it may adversely affect the site’s usability.
