First-party cookies are those which are set by the website you are visiting. They can only be read by that website.
Third-party cookies are those set by someone other than the owner of the website you are visiting. For example, the website might use a third-party analytics company such as google which will set its own cookie to perform this task. A website you visiting may also contain content embedded from other websites such as, for example, YouTube, and those sites may set their own cookies.
More importantly, a website may use a third-party advertising network to deliver targeted adverts on that website. These may also have the capability to track your browsing across different sites.
Session cookies are those stored temporarily during a browsing session. They are deleted from the website visitor’s device when the web browser is closed.
This type of cookie is stored on your computer for a fixed period (often a year or more) and is not automatically deleted when the browser is closed. Persistent cookies are used where it is desirable that we know who you are for more than one browsing session. For example, we use this type of cookie to store your preferences, so that they are remembered for your next visit to our website.

The cookies in use to deliver Google Analytics service are described in the table below.
These cookies are used to store information, such as what time your current visit occurred, whether you have been to the site before, and what site referred you to the web page.
