There are different types of cookies
First Party Cookies: These cookies are set by the website you’re visiting. And only that website can read them.
Third Party Cookies: These cookies are set by someone other than the owner of the website you’re visiting. Some pages may contain content from other sites like YouTube, which may set their own cookies. Also, if you share a link to one of our pages, the service you share it on (for example, Facebook) may set a cookie on your browser. We have no control over third-party cookies – you can turn them off, but not through us.
Session cookies: These cookies only last as long as your online session, and disappear from your computer or device when you close your browser.
Persistent cookies: These cookies stay on your computer or device after your browser has been closed and last for a time specified in the cookie. We use persistent cookies when we need to know who you are for more than one browsing session. For example, we use them to remember your preferences for the next time you visit.
