The cookie will help the website to recognise your device the next time you visit and remember some information about your browsing activity on the website. Most cookies won’t collect information that identifies you, and will instead collect more general information such as how users arrive at and use the websites, or a user’s general location.
There are two different types of cookies – ‘session’ cookies and ‘persistent’ cookies. Session cookies are temporary cookies that expire when you close your browser. Persistent cookies have a longer expiration date and stay on your computer hard-drive until you manually delete them – usually when you delete your search history.
One example of a persistent cookie is the ‘remember me on this computer’ function which means you can access the private area of a website again from your own PC or mobile, without logging-in again. Session cookies and persistent cookies which may be placed on our website by us are known for this reason are ‘first party cookies.’
