- What is a Cookie?
A cookie is a small text file that is placed on your hard drive by a web page server. Cookies contain information that can later be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you. There are several types of cookies:
Session Cookies provide information about how a website is used during a single browser session while a user is visiting a website and usually expire after the browser is closed.
Persistent Cookies remain on your device between different browser sessions for a set amount of time in order to enable the website to remember user preferences, settings, or actions across other sites.
First-Party Cookies are cookies set by the website you are visiting. They have the same domain or subdomain as what is in your browser’s address bar.
Third-Party Cookies are set by third parties that are different from the website you are visiting. These cookies have a different domain or subdomain than what is in your browser’s address bar.
Web beacons, tags and scripts may be used in the Websites or in emails to help us to deliver cookies, count visits, understand usage and campaign effectiveness and determine whether an email has been opened and acted upon. More information about each cookie can be found by viewing our current cookie list below, which is updated periodically to include additional cookies that are not yet listed.
