A cookie is a small text file containing data sent from a website and stored by your browser. Cookies allow us to do lots of useful things like remember your preferences or whether we have previously shown you some information. They also help us to provide you with a good experience when you browse our website and give us information which helps us to make improvements.
Cookies come in two different types; “persistent” and “session”:
- A persistent cookie will be stored by your browser and will remain valid until its set expiry date (or unless deleted by you using your browser options)
- A session cookie is stored in temporary memory and is not retained after the browser is closed. Typically it will store information in the form of a unique session ID that does not personally identify the user
Cookies can further be categorised as follows:
- First party – Cookies which are directly set by the website visited by the user i.e. the site shown in the address bar of the browser
- Third party – Cookies that are set by a site (domain) other than the one being directly visited by the user, such as, a third-party advertiser or a company providing analysis data for the visited site
