1. What are cookies?
A cookie is a file containing small amounts of data which may then be stored on your computer or mobile device when you visit a website or app. Cookies are then sent back to the original website or app at each subsequent visit, or to another website or an app that recognizes that cookie. Cookies are widely used by website or app owners to make their websites or apps easier to use or make it more functional, but also to provide information reports.
Cookies have many different features, such as: allowing you to navigate between pages efficiently, remembering your preferences, and generally improving the user experience. Cookies can also help ensure that the advertisements you see online are more relevant to you and your interests.
Cookies set by parties other than the website or the app owner are called "third party cookies". Third party cookies enable third party features or functionality to be provided on or through the Website or App (e.g. websites analytics services). The parties that set these third party cookies can recognise your computer both when it visits the website or the app in question and also when it visits certain other websites.
2. How long last the cookies?

Some cookies are 'session cookies', which means they only exist when your browser or app is open and are automatically deleted when you quit your browser or app. Other cookies are 'persistent cookies', meaning they survive after your browser or app is closed and can be used by websites or apps to recognize your computer when you re-open your browser or app later.
