What are cookies?
Cookies are small data files that are placed on your computer or other device when you access a website. Cookies are widely used by website owners to make their websites function, or work more efficiently, as well as to provide reporting information. They allow the website to recognize a user’s device and store some information about the user’s preferences or past actions.
Cookies that expire at the end of a browser session (normally when a user exits their browser) are called “session cookies,” while cookies that can be stored for longer are called “persistent cookies.” Session cookies allow websites to recognize and link the actions of a user during a browsing session. They may be used for a variety of purposes such as remembering what a user has put in their shopping basket as they browse around a site. Persistent cookies are stored on a user’s device in-between sessions. They can allow the preferences or actions of the user across a site (or across different websites) to be remembered.
