A cookie and other tracking technologies (e.g. HTTP cookies, Flash cookies, Software Development Kits, Pixels, Plugins, ‘Like’ buttons and social sharing tools, Device Fingerprinting, altogether referred to as ‘cookies’) are typically small text files that can be downloaded on to a device when you visit a website. The device then sends back the cookie to the website on each subsequent visit. 

Cookies can do a lot of different things, such as letting you navigate between pages efficiently, remembering your language preferences, counting the total number of visits to a website and the pages consulted.

They can be classified depending on how long they endure and their provenance: 


  • Session cookies: These cookies are temporary and expire once you close your browser (or once your session ends). 
  • Persistent cookies: These cookies remain on your hard drive until you erase them or your browser does, depending on the cookie’s expiration date. 


  • First-party cookies: these cookies are set on your device directly by the website you are visiting. 
  • Third-party cookies: These cookies are placed on your device, not by the website you are visiting, but by a third party like an advertiser or an analytics system.
