What is a Cookie?
A cookie is a small text file that a website saves on your computer or mobile device when you visit the website and can be used by websites to improve user’s experience. Cookies are divided in two types (session cookies and persistent cookies) depending on their lifespan. Session cookies are created temporarily in your browser and when the browser closes, the session cookie is permanently deleted. Persistent cookies remain in the browser’s subfolder and are activated again once you visit the website that created that specific cookie. A persistent cookie remains in the browser’s subfolder for a specific period set within the cookie’s file. On the date specified in the expiration, the cookie will be removed from the disk.
Essential cookies provide access to features and secure areas of the website. These cookies are essential to the website’s functionality and cannot be disabled by users. For example, an essential cookie may be used to prevent users from having to log in each time they visit a new page in the same session. The table below provides more information about the use of essential cookies at the website.
