Types of cookies

There are various different types of cookies:

  • Strictly necessary cookies. These cookies enable services that users have specifically asked for. Strictly necessary cookies are essential for the operation of a website and enable users to move around websites and use their features, e.g. cookies that enable users to log into secure areas of a website.
  • Analytical/performance cookies. These cookies collect information about how visitors use websites. Such information is aggregated, anonymous and not personally identifiable and is used to improve how websites work, e.g. these cookies can recognise and count website visitor numbers and see how visitors move around websites.
  • Functionality cookies. These cookies allow websites to remember choices that users make, (e.g. user name or language), and enable website owners to personalise their content for users, greet them by name and remember users’ preferences to improve their experience. They may be used to provide services that users have asked for, e.g. watching a video. The information collected may be anonymised and these cookies cannot track users’ browsing activity on other websites.
  • Targeting cookies or advertising cookies. These cookies record users’ visits to websites, the pages users visit and the links users follow. This information is used to make websites and the advertising displayed on them more relevant to users’ interests and to limit the number of times that users see advertisements and measure the effectiveness of the advertising campaign. They are usually placed by advertising networks with the website operator’s permission. Information obtained by these cookies may also be shared with third parties, e.g. advertisers. Often targeting/advertising cookies are linked to site functionality provided by third parties.


Cookies can either be “session cookies”, (which allow websites to link the actions of a user during a browser session, can be used for a variety of purposes and expire after the browser session), or “persistent cookies”, (which are stored on users’ devices in between browser sessions for a specified period of time, allowing the preferences or actions of the user across a website, or in some cases different websites, to be remembered).


Cookies can also either be “first party cookies”, which are set by the website which is visited by the user, (the website displayed in the URL window), or “third party cookies”, which are set by a domain other than the one being visited by the user, (a third party cookie will be set if a user visits a website and a third party company sets a cookie through that website).
