What are "Cookies" ?
Cookies are small software files that are loaded automatically by many web sites into your device when web pages are accessed. They are of two types 'long term' and 'session'. Long term cookies remain active on your computer after a browser session has ended. They are often dated, and expire after a set time has elapsed. They are, for example, often used for example to 'remember' log-in details, to save the user having to inputuser names etc. each time a web site is accessed. Session cookies are short term, they only exist whilst you are browsing the site, are not used to collect information or 'track' your browsing, and expire as soon as you leave the web site 'session'. They are renewed each time you re-access a web site. Session cookies are used to manage authentication, navigation, and other functions you need in order to enjoy modern web sites.
