Cookies policy: A cookie is a text-only string of information that a website transfers to the cookie file of the browser on your computer's hard disk so that the website can recognise you when you revisit and remember certain information about you. This can include which pages you have visited, choices you have made from menus, any specific information you have entered into forms and the time and date of your visit.
Session cookies: These are temporary cookies that expire at the end of a browser session, worded differently, when you leave the site. Session cookies allow the website to recognise you as you navigate between pages during a single browser session and allow you to use the website most efficiently. For example, session cookies enable a website to remember that a user has placed items in an online shopping basket.
Persistent cookies: In contrast to session cookies, persistent cookies are stored on your equipment between browsing sessions till expiry or deletion. They therefore enable the website to "recognise" you on your return, remember your preferences, and tailor services to you.
