Not really.  Cookies are text that is sent from the server to the web browser where it is stored, usually temporarily.  The next time a page is requested from that same server, the cookie that was stored is sent along with the page request.  Cookies by themselves don't do anything.  Servers read the cookies to get the information for a number of purposes.  Cookies do not and can not cause redirection.  That is done by the server or the web page.
