Session and persistent cookies
Cookies can expire at the end of a browser session (from when a user opens the browser window to when they exit the browser) or they can be stored for longer periods of time.
Session cookies expire after a browser session. Session cookies allow websites to link the actions of a user during a browser session. They may be used for a variety of purposes such as remembering what a user has put in their shopping basket as they browse around a site. They could also be used for security when a user is accessing internet banking or to facilitate use of webmail. Their use is strictly limited to the purpose of transmitting data (made up of random numbers created by the server) identifying the specific session and necessary to allow a safe and efficient website surfing by avoiding any other computer methods that could potentially compromise the users’ privacy.
Persistent cookies are stored persistently on a users’ device in between browser sessions. Persistent cookies allow the preferences or actions of the user across a site (or in some cases across different websites) to be remembered. Persistent cookies may be used for a variety of purposes including remembering users’ preferences and choices when using a site.
Cookies can be classified as ‘first’ or ‘third’ party depending on the website or domain placing the cookie.
First party cookies in basic terms are cookies set by the domain visited by the user – the website displayed in the URL window: i.e., cookies set by Galderma on this website.
Third party cookies are cookies that are set by a domain other than the one being visited by the user: i.e., cookies, which are set by companies and web sites other than Galderma, such as Google, Facebook, YouTube etc.
