About cookies

Cookies are small files, often using unique identifiers, that are sent by web servers to web browsers, and which may then be sent back to the server each time the browser requests a page from the web.  These enable web servers to identify and track users as they navigate different pages on a website, and identify users returning to a website. These files are usually stored on the user’s disk during the browser session.

Cookies may be either Persistent Cookies or Session Cookies.

A Persistent Cookie consists of a text file sent by a web server which will be stored by the web browser and will remain valid until its set expiry date (unless deleted by the user before the set expiry date).

A Session Cookie will expire at the end of the user session, when the web browser is closed.
