Cookies consist of small text files that websites visited by users send to their terminals, where they are stored before being re-transmitted to said sites upon subsequent visits.

Session and persistent cookies

Session cookies are those that allow websites to connect the actions of a user together during a browser session. Session cookies expire when the browser session ends. Persistent cookies are stored on a user’s device between browser sessions for varying periods of time, and allow user preferences or actions to be saved with respect to a website.
Technical and profiling cookies
