What are Cookies?
Cookies are very small files placed on to your computer as you browse the internet. The files capture certain information, and send this information back to the server each time you submit a page request. Cookies help our websites to remember who you are, and can be used to track things such as the type of browser you are using and your browsing preferences and patterns.
First Party vs. Third Party Cookies
Typically, when you visit a website, the owner of that website will place a cookie on your machine; this is known as a ‘first party cookie’.
Some websites allow other, unrelated parties to place a cookie on your machine, often for the purpose of advertising; this is referred to as a ‘third party cookie’.
Session Cookies vs. Persistent Cookies
Cookies can either be session based, or persistent in nature. Session cookies are automatically deleted from your computer when you close your browser. Persistent cookies remain stored on your computer until deleted, or until they reach a pre-determined expiry date.
