Types of cookies

Session cookies are temporary cookies that expire (and are automatically erased) whenever you close your browser. An example of how we use session cookies is to grant access to content, i.e. things you have to log in to do, such as view your Order History.

Persistent cookies usually have an expiry date far into the future and thus stay in your browser until they expire, or until you manually delete them. An example of how we use persistent cookies is for functionalities like the 'Remember my user ID' tick box.
