Cookies are files that are stored on the user’s computer to record information about a session. Considering their duration, there are two types of cookies; persistent and session cookies.
Persistent cookies are stored by a web browser for a longer period of time and will remain valid until its set expiry date (unless erased by the user before the expiry date). Session cookies are temporary cookies that are automatically erased when the web browser is closed. Cookies may also fall into two general categories: first party cookies (which is set by us) and third-party cookies (which are set by our partners and/or third party content providers).
