A. Key Concepts

i. First and third-party cookies

Whether a cookie is ‘first’ or ‘third’ party refers to the domain placing the cookie.

  • First-party cookies are those set by a website that is being visited by the user at the time (e.g., cookies placed by www.linkconnector.com).
  • Third-party cookies are cookies that are set by a domain other than that of the website being visited by the user. If a user visits a website and another entity sets a cookie through that website, this would be a third-party cookie.

ii. Persistent cookies

These cookies remain on a user’s device for the period specified in the cookie. They are activated each time that the user visits the website that created that cookie.

iii. Session cookies

These cookies allow website operators to link the actions of a user during a browser session. A browser session starts when a user opens the browser window and finishes when they close the browser window. Session cookies are created temporarily. Once you close the browser, all session cookies are deleted.
