What is in a cookie?
A cookie is a simple text file that is stored on your computer or mobile device by a website’s server, which only that server can retrieve or read. Each cookie is unique to your web browser. It will contain some anonymous information, such as a unique identifier and the site name, and some digits and numbers. A cookie allows a website to remember things, such as what’s in your shopping basket.
What is a third-party cookie?
A website might use a third-party analytics company, which will set its own cookie to perform this service, such as Google Analytics. It might also contain content embedded from, for example, YouTube or Facebook, and these sites may set their own cookies. A website might use a third party to deliver targeted advertising on its website, which might set cookies, too. These third parties might have the capability to track your browsing across different sites.
What’s the difference between a session and a persistent cookie?
Session cookies are stored only temporarily during a browsing session and are deleted from the user’s device when the browser is closed.
Persistent cookies are saved on your computer for a fixed period (usually a year or longer) and are not deleted when the browser is closed. Persistent cookies are used where the site needs to know who you are for more than one browsing session. For example, this type of cookie is used to store your preferences, so that they are remembered for your next visit.
What if I don’t want cookies to be set?
Some people feel it is a bit intrusive for a website to store information on their computer or mobile device, particularly when this information is stored and used by a third party without their knowledge. Although this activity is generally harmless, you may not, for example, want to see advertising that has been targeted at your interests. If you prefer, it is possible to block some or all cookies, or even to delete cookies that have already been set. But be aware that you might lose some functions of the website. Find out more here
