We use “cookies” to make it easier for you to use our site as well as to make it more enjoyable. Cookies are small data units that allow us to compare new and past visitors, understand how they use our site and provide us with information that can make future website visits more enjoyable and effective. Cookies do not record any personally identifiable information about the user and do not store information that might identify you.

Types of Cookies

First-Party Cookies

First-party cookies are set by the website visited by the user. The data collected using first-party cookies is used for purposes like calculating pageviews, sessions, and number of users. Primarily, publishers have access to data collected using first-party cookies, which can later be shared with advertisers or agencies for ad targeting. Apart from that, analytics tools use first-party cookies to understand user behavior and present it in tabular or graphical form for the publisher’s understanding.

Third-Party Cookies

Third-party cookies are set by domains that are not directly visited by the user. This happens when publishers add third-party elements (like chatbot, social plugins, or ads) on their website. Once installed, third-party cookies also track users and save their information for ad targeting and behavioral advertising. For example: Let’s say that you added a YouTube link to one of your blogs. Whenever this YouTube link gets a click, a YouTube cookie will be added to the user’s browser. This cookie can track him/her until it expires.

Session Cookies

Session cookies either expire immediately or within a few seconds of the user leaving the web browser. Among other uses, these cookies are used by e-commerce websites to remember the product placed in cart by the user, to keep users logged in, and to calculate each user session for analytical purpose. For example, if an e-commerce website does not use session cookies, then the items added in cart will be removed by the time user reach to the checkout page. And the server will forget the user and treat him/her like a completely new visitor.

Persistent Cookies

As the name suggests, persistent cookies stay on the user’s browser for a very long time. Generally, persistent cookies are required to have an expiration date which could be anything between a second to 10 years. Persistent cookies are used by publishers to track a single user and his/her interaction with their website. To check whether your browser has persistent cookies, try this. If you are logged in to Gmail on the browser, then close the tab(s) and restart your device. When your device turns back on, open the same browser and visit the same service or account, if you are still logged in, then you have persistent cookies saved on browser. Browsers are making it harder to use cookies. Web browsers like Firefox and Safari are updating their products to kill these cookies as soon as users are done with the websites. Secure Cookies Only HTTPS websites can set secure cookies, i.e., cookies with encrypted data. Mostly, the checkout or payment pages of e-commerce websites have secure cookies to facilitate safer transactions. Similarly, online banking websites use secure cookies for security reasons.
