Types of Cookies

Session Cookies are temporary files existing exclusively for the duration of a browsing session. When the browser is closed, session Cookies expire. They are usually employed to identify users accessing a site, remembering the user and his preferences while scrolling through the site pages and to provide the user with specific, previously collected information. The most common example is the “virtual shopping cart“ of an e-commerce site. When the user visits a catalogue page and selects some items, the session cookie stores the selections so that the elements remain in the virtual shopping cart until the user is ready to check them out. Without session Cookies, when the user proceeds to checkout the new page would not recognise the activities connected to the previously visited pages and the cart would remain empty. Persistent cookies are files that remain active also after closing the browser and help sites remember user data and settings for future visits. This result in faster and more convenient access since, for example, you don’t have to login again. Besides authentication, other website features made possible by persistent cookies include: language selection, theme selection, menu preferences, internal site bookmarks or favourites, among many others.
