What are cookies?
A cookie is a file containing an identifier that is sent by a web server to a web browser and is stored by the browser. The identifier is then set back to the server each time the browser requests a page from the server.
Cookies can be either "persistent" or "session" cookies. A persistent cookie will be stored by a web browser and will remain valid until it’s expiration date or when deleted by the user before the expiration date. A session cookie will expire at the end of the user session, usually when the web browser is closed.
Cookies do not typically contain any information that personally identifies a user, but personal information that we store about you may be linked to the information stored in and obtained from cookies.
Cookies can be used by web sites to identify and track users as they navigate different pages on a website. Cookies set by the website owner are called “first party cookies”. Cookies set by parties other than the website owner are called “third party cookies”.
