1.a) Session and permanent cookies
Cookies can expire at the end of a browser session (the period between the user?s opening a browser window and closing it) or they can be stored for longer.
Session cookies: they allow websites to connect the user?s actions during a browser session.? Session cookies expire when the browser session ends and are therefore not stored for long. For this reason, session cookies can be considered less intrusive than permanent cookies from the point of view of privacy. Permanent cookies: they are stored on a user’s device between browser sessions and make it possible to remember the user?s preferences or actions on a website (or in some cases different websites)

1.b) First-party and third-party cookies
A cookie is either “first-party” or “third-party” depending on the website or the domain it comes from.
First-party cookies are, essentially, cookies set by a website visited by the user, i.e. a website displayed in the URL window.

We talk about a third-party cookie when a user visits a website and a third-party company sets a cookie through that website.
