2. What are Cookies?
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.
Cookies helps us make the websites work efficiently and as well provide us with reporting information. Cookies are either set by us (Rear View Prints) or our Service Providers when they perform tasks on our behalf. For example, WooCommerce set its own cookies as a hosting Service Provider.
Cookies may be either “persistent” 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 browser is closed.
