A cookie is a small file containing an identifier (a unique string of letters and numbers) that is sent by a web server to a web browser and stored by the browser. This identifier is then sent back to the server each time the browser requests a page from the server.
Cookies may be either “persistent” cookies or “session” cookies. A persistent cookie will be stored by a web browser and remain valid until its set expiry date, unless deleted by the user before that date. In contrast, a session cookie will expire at the end of the user session when the web browser is closed.
Cookies do not typically contain information that personally identifies a user. However, personal information that we store about you may be linked to the information stored in and obtained from cookies.
