WHAT ARE COOKIES
 
Cookies are small text files —usually consisting of letters and numbers—stored on your device by a website server.
Cookies are distinguished in “Session Cookies” and “Persistent Cookies” depending on the time they remain stored on your device. “Session cookies” are stored on your device at the time you visit a website and are deleted automatically after you close your browser. “Persistent cookies” are stored on your device at the time you visit a website and remain stored after you close your browser.

First and third-party cookies– Whether a cookie is “first” or “third” party refers to the website or domain placing the cookie. First party cookies in basic terms are cookies set by a website visited by the user – the website displayed in the URL window. Third party cookies are cookies that are set by a domain other than the one being visited by the user. If a user visits a website and a separate company sets a cookie through that website this would be a third-party cookie.
