They dictate to a search engine spider what parts of the site they can crawl.

If you have a moderators forum for example then you wouldnt want that to be made public to the rest of the Internet. So you would ban a spider from it by using the robots.txt file.

Well if any part of your site holds sensitive information on your customers that shouldnt be made public, then you should maybe consider banning search engine spiders from visiting that part of the site.
