Types of Cookies used by Imprimatur
We use Session cookies, Persistent Cookies and First and Third Party Cookies.
- Session cookies: These allow websites to link the actions of a user during a browser session. They may be used for a variety of purposes such as remembering what a user has put in their shopping basket as they browse around a site. They can be used for security when a user is accessing internet banking or to facilitate use of webmail. These session cookies expire after a browser session so would not be stored longer term. For this reason session cookies may sometimes be considered less privacy intrusive than persistent cookies.
- Persistent Cookies: These are stored on a user’s device in between browser sessions which allows the preferences or actions of the user across a site (or in some cases across different websites) to be remembered. Persistent cookies may be used for a variety of purposes including remembering users preferences and choices when using a site or to target advertising.
- First and third Party Cookies: First Party cookies basically are cookies set by a website visited by the user of the website that will be displayed in the URL window. Third Party cookies are cookies that are set by a domain other than the one being visited by the user. This means that if you visit Imprimatur’s website and a separate company has set a cookie through our website, then this will be considered a third party cookie.
