    Cookies are small data files sent by a website’s server to a web browser, processor memory or hard drive and stored there. They can be used for a range of different purposes, such as customising a website for a particular user, helping a user navigate a website, improving that user’s website experience, and storing that user’s preferences and login information.

    Essential and non-essential cookies
    Cookies can be classified as either ‘essential’ or ‘non-essential’.

    Non-essential cookies: these are any cookies that do not fall within the definition of essential cookies, such as cookies used to analyse your behaviour on a website (‘analytical’ cookies) or cookies used to display advertisements to you (‘advertising’ cookies).

    Session and persistent cookies

    Cookies can be classified as either ‘session’ or ‘persistent’, depending on how long they last after they are placed on your browser.
    Session cookies: session cookies last for as long as you keep your browser open. They expire when you close your browser.
    Persistent cookies: persistent cookies expire at a fixed point in time or if you manually delete them from your browser, whichever occurs first.
