About cookies

What are cookies?

Cookies are very small data files which are sent by a website’s server to a web browser, and stored within processor memory or hard drive. There are a range of purposes which they can be used for, including customising a website for a user, helping users with website navigation, improving website user experience, and storing a user’s preferences so they do not need to be set on each subsequent visit.

 

Essential and non-essential cookies

Cookies can be classified as either ‘essential’ or ‘non-essential’.

Essential cookies are either used solely to conduct or facilitate the transmission of communications over a network; or are strictly necessary to provide an online service (e.g. a website or a service on a website) which you have requested.

Non-essential cookies are any cookies that are not essential, such as those that are used to analyse user behaviour on a website (‘analytical’ cookies) or cookies used to display advertisements (‘advertising’ cookies).

 

Session and persistent cookies

Cookies are classified as being either ‘session’ or ‘persistent’, depending on the length of time they last for after they are placed on your browser.

Session cookies last for as long as your browser is open and will expire when you close it.

Persistent cookies will either expire at a specific point in time or can be manually deleted from your browser, whichever occurs first.

Cookies can be classified as ‘first party’ or ‘third party’.

Informative, fun and great discussion/debate as usual. Cracking Event. Keep on doing what you do so well!

A RANT Conference attendee

Thanks for the invitation, it was a great evening with some very interesting discussions. The excellent venue lived up to its impressive image and the food was very good with a good mix of options. The discussion topic was very appropriate, but also the spread of sectors presented also showed that it is quite a transversal topic for our industry. The vendor's knowledge on the topic was very good and thought-provoking. I'd like to be invited to similar RANT events in the future. Really good event, I really enjoyed it and the mix of people.
