Cookies can be split into two types – ‘Session’ and ‘Persistent’:
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.
Persistent cookies and first-party cookies– these cookies can remain on a user’s device for a period of time that may cover multiple sessions. They are activated each time that the user visits the website that created that particular cookie.
Website visitors who don’t want their data used by Google Analytics can install the Google Analytics opt-out browser add-on. To opt-out of Analytics for the web, visit the Google Analytics opt-out page and install the add-on for your browser.
