Persistent cookies help websites
remember your information and settings for any future visits.
This results in faster and more convenient access since, for
example, you don't have to login again.
Besides authentication, other website
features made possible by persistent cookies include: language
selection, theme selection, menu preferences, internal site
bookmarks or favourites, among many others.
On your first visit, the website is
presented in default mode. During your visit, you select your
preferences and these preferences are remembered, through the use
of the persistent cookie, the next time you visit the site.
For example, a website may offer its
contents in different languages. On your first visit, you may
choose to have the content delivered in French and the site may
record that preference in a persistent cookie set on your browser.
When you revisit that site it will use the cookie to ensure that
the content is delivered in French. A persistent cookie enables a
website to remember you.
