A session cookie is also called a transient cookie. This cookie is erased when the you close your web browser.
The session cookie is stored in temporary memory and is not retained after the browser is closed. Session cookies do not collect information from the user’s computer. They typically will store information in the form of a session identification that does not personally identify the user.
This may include the pages users visit most often and whether users get error messages from certain pages. We use these so-called ‘session state cookies’ to help us improve our services, in order to improve our users’ browsing experience. Blocking or deleting these cookies will not render the website unusable.
A first party cookie is also called a permanent cookie; a stored cookie; or a cookie that is stored on a users hard drive until either it expires (persistent cookies are set with expiration dates) or the user deletes the cookie. These are similar to a website’s long-term memory.
They are used to collect identifying information about the user and help the website to remember your information and settings when you revisit them in the future.
Without these cookies, sites would not be able to remember your preferences such as menu settings, themes, language selection, and internal bookmarks between sessions. With first-party cookies, you can make those selections on your first visit and they will be consistent until the cookie expires.
Most persistent cookies expire after one or two years. If you do not visit the site within the expiration time frame, your browser will delete the cookie. You can also remove them manually.
