First and third-party cookies: whether a cookie is 'first' or 'third' party refers to the domain placing the cookie.
- First-party cookies are those set by a website that is being visited by the user at the time (e.g., cookies placed by our website domain). These enable us to operate our website and services efficiently and to track the patterns of behaviour of our website users.
- Third-party cookies are cookies that are set by a domain other than that of the website being visited by the user.

Session cookies: these cookies allow website operators to link the actions of a user during a browser session, such as managing registration/login and access to reserved features. A browser session starts when a user opens the browser window and finishes when they close the browser window. Session cookies are created temporarily. Once you close the browser, all session cookies are deleted.
