What are cookies
Cookies are small pieces of text sent by your web browser by a website you visit. A cookie is a text file is stored in your web browser by a web page server and allows the Service or a third-party to recognize you and make your next visit easier and the Service more useful to you.
Cookies can be “persistent” or “session” cookies and can be defined as follows:
- Persistent cookies: These are longer-term cookies that are tagged by the issuer with an expiration date. These cookies are stored by the browser even after the browser is closed. They are returned to the issuer every time you visit the site that issued the cookie or view a site that contains a resource (such as an ad) issued by the original cookie issuer. Persistent cookies can track your activity not only on the site that issued the cookie but also on any site that includes a resource issued by the same site. This is the mechanism sites like Google and Facebook use to create a log of user activity across multiple websites.
- Session cookies: These are temporary cookies stored in the browser’s memory just until the browser is closed. These types of cookies pose less of a security risk and are used to control the page elements shown to a user during a single multi-page visit to a website, and for other short-term storage purposes.
