Two Types of Cookies

Do you know your cookies?  (not the kind that Girl Scouts sell!)

Can you name the two types?

 I am referencing Browser Cookies: Session and Persistent cookies.

Session cookies are typically removed when you close the browser. Session cookies are utilized for tracking of user login information, temporary pages settings, shopping carts and the like.

 Persistent cookies are also called tracking cookies. They are often used by advertisers to track what ads you have already viewed. It is also used for some web pages to remember information about you, such as automatic login and auto-filling forms with commonly used details (such as your login name). Persistent cookies are removed when max age or expiration (time to life/ expiry time) date have been reached. These dates are set by the originator of the web pages.  Many tracking cookies will remain for up to a year or longer.
