Different types of cookies
There are two different types of cookies – ‘session’ cookies and ‘persistent’ cookies. The Alba Lock & Safe website, like many websites, uses both. Session cookies are temporary cookies that expire when you close your browser. Persistent cookies have a longer expiration date and stay on your computer hard-drive until you manually delete them – usually when you delete your search history.
One example of a persistent cookie is the ‘remember me on this computer’ function which means you can access the private area of a website again from your own PC or mobile, without logging-in again. Session cookies and persistent cookies placed on our website by us are known for this reason are ‘first party cookies.’
