1.2 A cookie may be used to offer a more customised service, it may be used to provide a web tracking solution for collecting anonymous information about site visitors and it may be used in delivering advertising services.
1.3 A cookie is either 'persistent' or 'session only'. A persistent cookie will be stored by a web browser and will remain valid until its set expiry date is reached or until it is deleted by the user. A session only cookie will expire at the end of the user session, when the web browser is closed.
1.4 A cookie is also either 'first-party' (one created by the domain that the user is visiting) or 'third-party' (one created by a domain that is different to the one that a user is visiting).
Cookies that we use (first-party)
2.1 We use session only cookies to help us understand how users navigate through this website. These cookies only retain information about user activity while a user remains on this website. When a user closes their browser then these cookies are deleted.

You'll notice that, unless you choose to log out after visiting, you don't have to log in again when you next visit. As with all persistent cookies, this 'persistence' won't last forever. The cookie will expire and you'll have to re-enter your login details periodically.
