What are Cookies

Cookies are small text files that a website stores on your computer or mobile device when you visit the site. Cookies are widely used by website owners in order to make their websites work, or to work more efficiently, as well as to provide reporting information and to remember you and your preferences, either for a single visit (through a "session cookie") or for multiple repeat visits (using a "persistent cookie"). “Persistent cookies” are cookies saved on your computer and that are not deleted automatically when you quit your browser, unlike a “session cookie”, which is deleted when you quit your browser.

“First party cookies” are cookies set by the website you’re visiting. Only that website can read them. In addition, a website might potentially use external services, which also set their own cookies, known as “third-party cookies”. “Third-party cookies” enable third-party features or functionality to be provided on or through the website (e.g. like advertising, interactive content and analytics). The parties that set these “third-party cookies” can recognize your computer both when it visits the website in question and also when it visits certain other websites. They can also help to ensure that adverts you see online are more relevant to you and your interests.
