Session cookies; web pages have no memories. Session cookies enable the website owners to keep track of the movement of users visiting the website from page to page so they do not get asked for the same information they have already given to the site. Session cookies are deleted when you close the browser.

Persistent cookies; during a visit these cookies are used to store information about the type of browser used and which additional browser software is installed. They also store the preferences selected when personalising the website, for example, preferred location, language or fonts. These preferences are remembered, through the use of the persistent cookies, so the next time you visit the site you will not have to set them again.
