|Session Cookie||A user’s session cookie (also known as an in-memory cookie or transient cookie) for a website exists in temporary memory only while the user is reading and navigating the website. When an expiry date or validity interval is not set at cookie creation time, a session cookie is created. Web browsers normally delete session cookies when the user closes the browser. (ref: Wikipedia)|
|Persistent cookie||A persistent cookie will outlast user sessions. If a persistent cookie has its Max-Age set to 1 year (for example), then, during that year, the initial value set in that cookie would be sent back to the server every time the user visited the server. This could be used to record a vital piece of information such as how the user initially came to this website. For this reason, persistent cookies are also called tracking cookies. (ref: Wikipedia)|
|Secure Cookie||First-party cookies are cookies that belong to the same domain that is shown in the browser’s address bar (or that belong to the subdomain of the domain in the address bar). Third-party cookies are cookies that belong to domains different from the one shown in the address bar. Web pages can feature content from third-party domains (such as banner adverts), which opens up the potential for tracking the user’s browsing history. Privacy setting options in most modern browsers allow the blocking of third-party tracking cookies. (Ref: Wikipedia)|
|Analytical Cookies||An analytical cookie allows us to count the number of visitors and to see how those visitors move around the site. Analytical cookies help us to improve the way our website works, for example by making sure that users are finding what they need easily.|
