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 created temporarily once a user opens a browser window and are deleted from your device once the browser is closed.
