Cookies: small text files (usually comprising letters and numbers) that are saved in the browser or device memory when you visit a site or view a message. Cookies allow a site to recognise a particular device or browser. There are various types of cookies:

  • Session cookies store information that the user inputs and tracks their movement within the website. This information is stored in a temporary memory location and then deleted after the session is completed or the web browser is closed;
