What is a cookie?
A cookie is a small piece of data that a website asks your browser to store on your device which allows the Site to remember your actions or preferences over time. A cookie can be classified by its lifespan and the domain to which it belongs. By lifespan, a cookie is either a:
- Session cookie: These are also referred to as an ‘Essential Cookie’ and by default the cookie is erased when the current browser window is closed; or
- Persistent cookie: a cookie which remains on the user’s computer/device for a predefined period of time.
As for the domain to which it belongs, there are either:
- First-party cookies: cookies which are set by the web server of the visited page and share the same domain; and
The User shall select the cookies that will be used for their User experience. The User shall also have the positive option to block or remove cookies by activating the setting on their browser.
Session cookies are an essential tool required for the functioning of the Site and for this reason consent of the User is not required. Save for essential cookies, all cookies will expire after after a reasonable amount of time defined by the purpose of the individual cookie.
