What is a cookie?
A cookie is a small file placed on your device (e.g. computer or mobile phone) when you visit a website.
Cookies are used to make your use of the website easier as well as provide business and marketing information to the website operator.

Types of cookies
There is a distinction between session cookies and persistent cookies, and between first party and third party cookies.
Session cookies allow actions to be tracked during a single browser session. They are deleted from your device when you close the browser. Persistent cookies remain on your device between sessions and allow a website to “recognize” a user on their return, and to remember their preferences. These cookies will remain stored on your device until deleted or when they have reach a specified expiry date.
Session and persistent cookies can be either first or third-party cookies. A first-party cookie is set by the website being visited, whereas a third-party cookie is issued by a party other than website being visited.
