Cookies may be either "persistent" cookies or "session" cookies: a persistent cookie will be stored by a web browser and will remain valid until its set expiry date, unless deleted by the user before the expiry date; a session cookie, on the other hand, will expire at the end of the user session, when the web browser is closed.

These cookies also retain the way you have customised web pages – for example, text size and fonts. They may also be used to provide services you have requested. The information these cookies collect may be anonymised and they cannot track your browsing activity on other websites.
