What exactly are cookies?

Cookies are little text files that are created when you visit a website and include data. They are saved on the visitor’s computer and enable the user to access a variety of features. On this website (the “Site”), both session cookies and persistent cookies are utilised. While the visitor is exploring the page, a session cookie is kept in the visitor’s computer’s memory. This cookie is deleted when the user’s web browser is closed or after a certain period of time has passed (meaning that the session expires). A persistent cookie, on the other hand, remains on the visitor’s machine until it is erased.
