There are two types of cookies; so called “persistent” cookies that are permanent, and “session” cookies that are temporary. Persistent cookies last until they expire on a pre-set date (or are deleted by you) and are used, for example, to remember user specific settings between visits on a website. Session cookies last until you stop browsing and are used, for example, to log statistics when the user moves from one page to the next.
