What are cookies and similar technologies?
A cookie is a small piece of data that a website asks your browser to store on your computer or mobile device. The cookie allows the website to “remember” your actions or preferences over time. For more information see: https://www.allaboutcookies.org/.
Websites may also use similar technologies for storing information. These can include, for example, Local Shared Objects (commonly referred to as “Flash Cookies”), web beacons or tracking pixels (including transparent or clear gifs). Types of cookies
A cookie can be classified by its lifespan and the domain to which it belongs. As to lifespan, a cookie is either:
- a session cookie, which is erased when the user closes the browser, or
- a persistent cookie, which remains on the user’s computer/device for a period of time, determined by the party that set the cookie
As for the domain to which a cookie belongs, a cookie may be:
- a first-party cookie, which is set by the web server of the web page the user is visiting, or
- a third-party cookie, which is set by a different domain (this can happen when a web page references a file located outside its domain)
