What are Cookies:
A cookie is a small text file that is stored by the computer when a website is visited by a user. The text stores information that the site is able to read in the moment in which it is seen at a later time. Some of these cookies are necessary for the proper operation of the site, others are useful to the visitor because they can safely store such as a user name or language settings. The advantage of having cookies installed on your PC is to no longer need to fill out the same information each time you want to access a site visited previously.
Some cookies are extremely useful because they can make browsing more enjoyable for you when you visit a website already consulted other times. If you use the same device and the same browser, the cookie can, for example, remembering your preferences, help us understand how to use our sites and make content appear more relevant to the interests and needs of the user.
Cookies are categorized as follows below.
A) Advertising Cookies

They are also used to limit the number of times you see an advertisement and help measure the effectiveness of an advertising campaign. We may also share this information with third parties for this purpose.
B) Persistent Cookies
They remain stored on your computer’s hard drive until they expire or cancellation by users/visitors. Through persistent cookies visitors who access the site (or any other users who use the same computer) are automatically recognized at every visit. Persistent cookies fulfill many functions in the interest of navigators, such as the use of the navigation language or recording of the shopping cart in shopping online. However, persistent cookies can also be used for promotional purposes or, even, for purposes of dubious legality. Visitors can set your computer’s browser so that it accept/reject all cookies or to alert whenever a cookie is offered, in order to assess whether to accept it. The user is allowed, however, to change the default configuration (default) and disable cookies (ie block a final), by setting the security level higher.
C) Session Cookies
They are stored on the user’s computer for purely technical and functional requirements, for the transmission of session identifiers required to enable a safe and efficient site; they are deleted at the end of the “session” (hence the name) with the browser is closed. This type of cookie avoids the use of other technologies that could compromise the privacy of users.
