• Persistent - these are stored on the hard drive of a computer or device (and generally depends on the default cookie lifetime). Persistent cookies also include those placed on a site other than the one the user is currently visiting - known as 'third party cookies' - which can be used anonymously to memorize a user's interests so that advertising is delivered as relevant as possible to users.

• strictly required - certain cookies are required for websites to function properly. The strictly required cookies allow you to navigate the site and enjoy its features. Without these cookies, we will not be able to offer specific features, such as automatic redirection to the least busy server or keeping your wish list down.
• Functional - functional cookie records information about the choices that users make, and also allows site operators to personalize the site according to the user's requirements. For example, cookies can be used to save category / segment preferences.

e. First Party Cookies vs Third Party Cookies - Each cookie is created by a particular responsible site that places that cookie. • First party cookies are placed by the Internet domain / website accessed by the user (whose address appears in the browser address bar). For example, if the user visits www.health-shop.com/en and the cookie placed on his computer is www.health-shop.com/en, then it is a first party cookie. • A third party cookie is placed by another Internet domain / website rather than the one accessed by the user; this means that the website you are accessing also contains information from a third-party site - for example, an ad banner that appears on the site you're accessing. f. Built-in content (social buttons, applications, and widgets). Web pages allow the deployment of third-party social buttons or widgets that allow users to interact with sites whose social buttons or widgets are being deployed. User interaction with third-party social buttons or widgets allows the third party to collect some information about that user, including the IP address, page header information, and browser information.
