What is a Cookie?
A “Cookie” is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a web server. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the Cookie to you.
Cookies typically fall into the following categories:
A First-Party Cookie refers to a Cookie created by the domain of the website the user is visiting.
A Third-Party Cookie is a Cookie that is placed by a domain other than that of the website the user is visiting.
A Session Cookie is temporary, linking the actions of a user during the any given browser session. When the browser is closed, the cookie is deleted.
A Persistent Cookie, also known as a permanent Cookie, is stored for a specific period of time and activates each time the user visits the website that created the Cookie.
A “Web Beacon” (also called a “pixel tag” or “clear GIF”) is a piece of computer code that enables us to monitor user activity and website traffic or know when a user has opened or interacted with an email.
