From the Amazon Associates FAQ:

Links from Associates Web sites to Amazon use a special format that includes this code. Every time a customer follows the link on the Plum Borough School district website, this unique URL tells Amazon which page to display as well as which Amazon Associate sent the customer to Amazon. We keep track of the Associates ID as the customer browses through our Web site, and even if they close their browser and come back later that day.
