How long will cookies stay on my device?
The length of time a cookie stays on your computer or device varies depending on whether it is a “persistent” or “session” cookie. Persistent cookies remain on your hard drive until you erase them or they expire. How long a persistent cookie remains on your browser depends on how long the visited website has programmed the cookie to last. Session cookies are temporary and are erased when you close your browser at the end of your surfing session. The next time you visit that particular site, it will not recognize you and will treat you as a new visitor.
