What are cookies and pixels?
A cookie is a small text file stored on a user’s device that may later be retrieved by a web server from the device. Cookies allow web servers to do certain things like remember the items you placed in a shopping cart or that you are logged in. Some cookies let us and service providers keep track of our website users’ browsing activities and connect certain activities into a session.
A pixel is a very small image that may be found within web pages and emails which requires a call to our servers in order for the pixel to be rendered in those web pages and emails—this call provides information about your device and visit. Pixels can enable us and third parties to place cookies on your browser.
Are there different types of cookies?
Cookies typically are classified as either session cookies or persistent cookies. Session cookies disappear from your device or browser then you turn off your device. Persistent cookies remain on your browser even if you turn off your device. We use both persistent cookies and session cookies.
Can you stop us from setting cookies?
