First party cookies: these are set by the website you’re visiting and only that website can read them.
Third party cookies: these are set by someone other than the website you’re visiting. Some website pages may feature content from other sites such as Twitter and YouTube which may have their own cookies. Sharing a website page on another service page e.g. Twitter may also set a cookie on your browser.
Session cookies: these are only stored on your computer during your web session and are automatically deleted when you close your browser – they usually store an anonymous session ID allowing you to browse a website without having to log in to each page but they do not collect any information from your computer.
Persistent cookies: a persistent cookie is stored as a file on your computer and it remains there when you close your web browser. The cookie can be read by the website that created it when you visit that website again. We use persistent cookies for Google Analytics and for personalisation (see below).
