Types Of Cookies We Use
There are several different types of cookie. These are the most common ones:
- Session cookie
- A session cookie only lasts for the duration of the user’s website visit. A web browser normally deletes session cookies when it quits.
- Persistent cookie
- A persistent cookie will outlast user sessions. If a persistent cookie has its maximum age set to 1 year, then, within the year, the initial value set in that cookie would be sent back to the server every time the user visited the server. This could be used to record a piece of information such as how the user initially came to this website. For this reason persistent cookies are also called tracking cookies.
- Secure cookie
- A secure cookie is only used when a browser is visiting a server via HTTPS, ensuring that the cookie is always encrypted when transmitting from client to server.
