What is a cookie?

A cookie is a small piece of data that may be stored on your computer or mobile device. It allows a website “remember” your actions or preferences over a length of time.

Cookies broadly fall into 2 categories:

  • Session cookies
  • Persistent cookies

Session cookies are generally used for security reasons and to reallocate server resources once a visitor has left the website. These will expire automatically several hours after the last user-input or page request has been made by the visitor, and/or the visitor's web browser has been fully closed.

Persistent cookies are usually set to last longer than session cookies, and are used to remember visitor preferences for their next visit, and to track page visits for analytics purposes and improving the website for future visitors.

Further information on cookies can be found at
