12.1    A cookie is a file containing an identifier (a string of letters and numbers) that is sent by          a web server to a web browser and is stored by the browser. The identifier is then sent            back to the server each time the browser requests a page from the server.

12.2   Cookies may be either "persistent" cookies or "session" cookies: a persistent cookie will            be stored by a web browser and will remain valid until its set expiry date, unless deleted          by the user before the expiry date; a session cookie, on the other hand, will expire at the          end of the user session, when the web browser is closed.

12.3   Cookies do not typically contain any information that personally identifies a user, but                personal information that we store about you may be linked to the information stored in          and obtained from cookies.
