Our site uses two types of cookies: ‘Session’ and ‘Persistent’.
Session cookies: A session cookie lasts only for the duration of your visit to the website. It will expire when you close your browser, or if you haven’t visited the site for certain period of time (called session idle timeout, in which case, the site will expire/invalidate the user session).
Persistent cookies: A persistent cookie will outlast user sessions. If a persistent cookie has its Max-Age set to 1 year, then, within the year, the initial value set in that cookie would be sent back to site every time the user visits the site. This could be used to record a vital piece of information such as how you initially came to the website. For this reason, persistent cookies are also called tracking cookies.
