Cookies are small text files that often contain a unique identifier. They are sent from a web server to a web browser then back to the web server whenever a browser requests access to a web page.
Cookies may be persistent or temporary. A persistent cookie is a text file sent by a server to a web browser and stored in the browser. It remains valid until a defined expiry date (unless the user deletes it before the expiry date). A temporary (or “session”) cookie expires at the end of the user session when the web browser is closed.
The website uses temporary and persistent cookies on its website.
