Cookies are text files, containing small amounts of information, which are downloaded to your browsing device, such as a computer, phone or tablet, when you visit a website. Cookies can be recognized by the website that downloaded them – or other websites that use the same cookies. This helps websites know whether the browsing device has visited the website before and can remember your preferences and settings for online services.
A cookie can be either a “first” or “third” party cookie, depending on whether the cookie, is placed directly by the website that the user is visiting (“first party cookie”) or whether the cookies are set by a third-party entity through the website that the user is visiting (“third party cookie”). The length of time that a cookie stays on your device will depend on whether the cookie is either a “persistent” or “session” cookie. Persistent cookies remain on a user’s device until the cookie expires or is deleted and they are activated each time that the user visits the website that placed the persistent cookie. Session cookies are temporary once a user opens a browser window and are deleted from your device once the browser is closed.
