What are cookies?
Are there different types of cookies?
Yes, there are chocolate chip and caramel cookies to name just two. In website speak there are also different types of cookies – ‘session’ cookies and ‘persistent’ cookies and the Nutritious Lolly website, like many websites, uses both. Session cookies are temporary cookies that expire when you close your browser. Persistent cookies have a longer expiration date and stay on your computer hard-drive until you manually delete them.
So, what do persistent cookies do?
One example of a persistent cookie is the ‘remember me on this computer functionality’ which means you can access the private area of a website again from your own PC or mobile, without logging-in again. The session cookies and persistent cookies placed on our website by us are known for this reason are ‘first party cookies.’
What about third party cookies?
Can I choose not to have cookies on my computer?
