Cookies are widely used to make websites work, or work more efficiently, as well as to provide information to the site owner or others. Session cookies are temporary cookies that remain in the cookie file of your browser only until you leave the site. They allow websites to link your actions during a browser session. Persistent cookies stay in the cookie file of your browser for longer (though how long will depend on the lifetime of the specific cookie). For further information on cookies, including how to use your browser to block them, visit: http://www.allaboutcookies.org.
WordPress generates two types of cookies by default.
Session cookies – Session cookies are set when a user logs in to a WordPress site. These cookies contain a user’s authentication details, and the settings for the admin area interface. Login cookies in WordPress expire every 15 days.
Comments cookies – We do not currently have comments enabled on our website, however when a user leaves a comment on a WordPress powered website, WordPress automatically sets a cookie containing user’s name, email address, and URL. This cookie allows WordPress to automatically fill username, email, and URL fields on the user’s subsequent visits. The comment cookie expires in 347.222 days or 30000000 seconds.
WordPress plugins may use the information stored in the default cookies to provide personalization features. Plugins may also store their own cookies. For example, we use the WooCommerce plugin which uses additional cookies so that buyers can easily add things to their cart, store for later when they checkout, and log in and out of their account.
