Cookies are small text files that your computer or mobile phone (depending on the device used) downloads and stores on your browser during your first visit. When you return to the site and the browser requests that page from the server, the browser sends back the cookies that belong to that site. This allows the server to identify and track the web browser activity. This is known as cookies. There are several types of cookies:
Temporary (session) cookies are automatically removed once you close the web browser. Websites use them to store temporary information, such as items in a shopping cart.
Permanent or saved cookies remain on your computer after you close the Internet browser. Websites use them to store information pertaining to your settings when using the website. Permanent cookies will remain on your computer as long as you have them removed or they expire.
First-party cookies are created and stored by the website you are visiting directly. We differentiate between permanent or session first-party cookies. They allow website owners to store data which they will use again were you to return to their site, such as username and password.
Third-party cookies come from ads from other sites that appear on the website you have visited. Some websites can contain content from different areas (such as banners) and these cookies allow the websites to track the use of the Internet. Most modern browsers allow you to disable the third-party cookies.
By disabling cookies you decide whether you will allow their storage on your computer. Settings can be controlled and changed in your web browser. If you disable cookies, you might not be able to use certain features of the website.
