A cookie is a small text file that a web server sends to a web browser and stores. Each time the browser requests a page from the server, the identifier is provided back.
Cookies might be persistent or temporary. A persistent cookie is a text file transmitted from a web server to a web browser that remains valid until its expiration date (unless deleted by the user before the expiry date). A session cookie, on the other hand, expires when the web browser is closed.
This website uses both session and persistent cookies.
