First-party cookies are set by the website visited by the user. The data collected using first-party cookies is used for purposes like calculating page views, sessions, and number of users. Primarily, publishers have access to data collected using first-party cookies, which can later be shared with advertisers or agencies for ad targeting. Apart from that, analytics tools – like Google Analytics – use first-party cookies to understand user behavior and present it in tabular or graphical form for the publisher’s understanding.
Third-party cookies are set by domains that are not directly visited by the user. This happens when publishers add third-party elements (like chatbot, social plugins, or ads) on their website. Once installed, third-party cookies also track users and save their information for ad targeting and behavioral advertising. For example: Let’s say that you added a YouTube link to one of your blogs. Whenever this YouTube link gets a click, a YouTube cookie will be added to the user’s browser. This cookie can track him/her until it expires.
Session cookies either expire immediately or within a few seconds of the user leaving the web browser. Among other uses, these cookies are used by e-commerce websites to remember the product placed in cart by the user, to keep users logged in, and to calculate each user session for analytical purposes. For example, if an e-commerce website does not use session cookies, then the items added in cart will be removed by the time the user reaches the checkout page. And the server will forget the user and treat him/her like a completely new visitor.
As the name suggests, persistent cookies stay on the user’s browser for a very long time. Generally, persistent cookies are required to have an expiration date which could be anything between a second to 10 years. Persistent cookies are used by publishers to track a single user and his/her interaction with their website.
Only HTTPS websites can set secure cookies, i.e., cookies with encrypted data. Mostly, the checkout or payment pages of e-commerce websites have secure cookies to facilitate safer transactions. Similarly, online banking websites are required to use secure cookies for security reasons.
