What Are Cookies?
A cookie is a small file, or files on your computer, phone, or other device with a browser to save snippets of text for reference by the website you are visiting.
All cookies have expiration dates in them that determine how long they stay in your browser.
First and third-party cookies: whether a cookie is ‘first’ or ‘third’ party refers to the domain placing the cookie.
First-party cookies are those set by a website that is being visited by the user at the time).
Third-party cookies are cookies that are set by a domain other than that of the website being visited by the user. If a user visits a website and another entity sets a cookie through that website, this would be a third-party cookie.
Session cookies – these are temporary cookies that expire (and are automatically erased) whenever you close your browser. A browser session starts when a user opens the browser window and finishes when they close the browser window. Session cookies are created temporarily. Once you close the browser, all session cookies are deleted.
Persistent cookies – these usually have an expiration date and so stay in your browser until they expire, or until you manually delete them. They are activated each time that the user visits the website that created that particular cookie.
