What is a cookie?
A cookie is information that a visited website saves on your computer. The information that cookies typically store is your preferences or settings for the website, such as your chosen language or address. When you later reopen that same webpage, your web browser sends back cookies that belong to that particular page. This allows the page to display information tailored to your needs.
Cookies can also store personal information, such as your name or email address. However, this information cannot be stored if you have not given your consent. Web sites cannot access information you have not given them, and they cannot access other files on your computer in any way. You can always change your internet browser settings so that you can decide for yourself whether to approve or reject requests to save cookies, or to delete saved cookies automatically when you close your internet browser and the like.
What are temporary cookies?
Temporary cookies are also called session cookies. They are automatically removed from your computer when you close your Internet browser
What are persistent cookies?
Persistent or saved cookies remain on your computer after you close your Internet browser program. They use websites to store information, such as login names and passwords, so you don’t have to log in every time you visit.
What are first-party cookies?
First-party cookies come from the website you are viewing and are shared on a permanent or temporary basis. These cookies allow you to store data that will be reused on your next visit to this website.
