Session cookies–Similar to persistent cookies these cookies allow websites to link the actions of a user during a browser session. They may be used to remember what pages a user has accessed as they browse around a site. They could also be used for security when a user is accessing services, sending emails or to facilitate use of webmail. However, these session cookies expire after a browser session so would not be stored longer term. For this reason session cookies may sometimes be considered less privacy intrusive than persistent cookies.

First and third party cookies– Whether a cookie is ‘first’ or ‘third’ party refers to the website or domain placing the cookie.
