What are Cookies?
Cookies are small files of text which are used to store or retrieve information. This information is used to perform particular functions on a website, as well as remembering visits to a website.
Cookies are split into two different types: session cookies and persistent cookies.
A session cookie is only there for the extent of your visit to a website. This is then deleted as soon as you leave the website.
Persistent cookies relate to repeat visits to a website, in which the information remains on your computer or device for a particular period of time — or until you manually delete them.
Other types of cookie technology include pixels, tags, and web beacons. Local storage can also store and retrieve data on a device. These are similar to cookies.
