Cookies come in two different types; "persistent" and "session":
- A persistent cookie will be stored by your browser and will remain valid until its set expiry date (or unless deleted by you using your browser options)
- A session cookie is stored in temporary memory and is not retained after the browser is closed. Typically it will store information in the form of a unique session ID that does not personally identify the user
Cookies can further be categorised as follows:
- First party - Cookies which are directly set by the website visited by the user i.e. the site shown in the address bar of the browser
- Third party - Cookies that are set by a site (domain) other than the one being directly visited by the user, such as, a third-party advertiser or a company providing analysis data for the visited site
