Session cookies are temporarily stored when you as a visitor are on the website and disappear when you close your browser.

Cookies can also be divided into first-party cookies and third-party cookies. First-party cookies are placed by the website you are visiting, while third-party cookies are placed by another website. At gradientech.se, we use both first-party cookies and third-party cookies.
