Types of Cookies

Cookies are used for many things, and to do this there are different types of cookies for different purposes.

The main types of cookies are Session Cookies and Persistent Cookies.

Session Cookies:


Session cookies are created temporarily in your PC browser cookie folder, while you are visiting a web site. Once you leave the site and the browser is closed, the session cookie is deleted.


Persistent Cookies:


Persistent cookie files remain in your PC browser cookie folder and are activated again once you visit the website that created that particular cookie. A persistent cookie remains in the PC browser cookie folder for the duration period set within the cookie's file.


Third Party Cookies:


Third party cookies are created by another web site (often advertiser sites) that has content on the page you are visiting. This content will usually be a web page that is embedded in an iframe. Because the content is being written by the embedded sites server any cookies it writes will only be readable by that sites pages. These cookies will not be visible to the page that hosts the iframe nor will they be able to be deleted by it. They can only be deleted by the site that set them, or you by deleting them via your browsers tools or via your file explorer.


Why do websites use third-party cookies by advertisers in this way?


Many websites rely on advertising to survive and to provide free content to their visitors. However, most do not have the infrastructure or resources to manage and run the advertising on their web pages. Instead become an affiliate to a third-party advertising company to provide the adverts, campaign delivery and reporting facilities that they need, in return they may receive a commission on any products or services purchased as a result of a user clicking an advert on their site. The cookie is used to identify which site (affiliate) forwarded the customer to the advertiser’s site and subsequently identify which site owner to pay the commission to.
