Cookies

Curious about cookies and sessions? Cookies and sessions are virtually the same thing with a few small differences:

  • a cookie can have an expiry date (that you can set)
  • a session will die after a set time on the server (the default is 20 mins, but this can be overridden on a project by project basis) or when a user closes their browser (whichever happens first).
  • a cookie is stored on the user’s computer where as a session is stored on the web server

We don’t use cookies to track users browsing history or to ‘remember’ login details, but we do use sessions to authenticate users in the Member’s Area. Cookies/sessions will be used for authentication but not for anything untoward like tracking page movements.
