What is a cookie?

A cookie is a small file placed on your device (e.g. computer or mobile phone) when you visit a website or a platform. Cookies are used to make your use of the website and/or platform easier as well as provide business and marketing information to the website operator. 

The term ‘cookies’ includes similar technologies for collecting and storing information, such as Local Shared Objects (commonly referred to as “flash cookies”) and web beacons or web bugs (including transparent or clear gifs).  

Types of cookies

There is a distinction between session cookies and persistent cookies, and between first party and third-party cookies. 

Session cookies allow actions to be tracked during a single browser session. They are deleted from your device when you close the browser. Persistent cookies remain on your device between sessions and allow a website or platform to “recognize” a user on their return, and to remember their preferences. These cookies will remain stored on your device until deleted or when they have reached a specified expiry date. 

Session and persistent cookies can be either first or third-party cookies. A first-party cookie is set by the website or platform being visited, whereas a third-party cookie is issued by a party other than website or platform being visited.
