Cookies are a legitimate website technology
Cookies are files that are stored on your computer or other device when you visit a website. The cookies allow the website to remember you and how you used the website every time you visit or throughout a single visit. In principle this is a useful and necessary function.
Cookies don't actually hold personal information such as your name or bank details. Generally, the information in a cookie can’t be linked back to you. But they can help locate and retain information after you log in, for instance as you move from page to page on the Website, your login session is retained.
Strictly necessary cookies
Some cookies are necessary for the Website to function. They cannot be switched off because they facilitate key functionality required for logging in and filling in forms and indeed setting your privacy preferences.
You can set your browser to block or alert you about these cookies, but some parts of the site will not then work. These cookies do not store any personally identifiable information.
These cookies "remember" registered visitors/customers in order to improve their user experience.
First party and third party cookies
First party cookies originate from the same domain as the website you’re currently visiting, whereas third party cookies originate from a different domain.
Duration is another factor of cookies. There are basically two distinct types:
Session (transient) cookies: These cookies are erased when site visitors close their browsers and are not used to collect information from their computers. They typically store information in the form of a session identification that does not personally identify the user.
Persistent (permanent or stored) cookies: These cookies are stored on a site visitor's hard drive until they expire (at a set expiration date) or until they are deleted. These cookies are used to collect identifying information about the user, such as web surfing behaviour or user preferences for a specific site.
