Types of cookies
We use both 'Session Cookies', which expire once you close your web browser, and 'Persistent Cookies', which stay on your computer until they expire or you delete them - examples of both are below:
- Session Cookie - where you login to a website and it remembers that you are logged in as you navigate the website. When you close the browser the cookie is deleted, as a result when visiting the website again you would need to log in again.
- Persistent Cookie - if you were prompted to take part in a website survey and you completed the survey a persistent cookie would be stored on your computer to record that you have completed that survey. This would prevent you being prompted with the survey each time you visited the website.
