On PIVAB’s web sites, both transient and persistent cookies are used. With transient cookies we refer to cookies that are only kept in memory within the lifespan of the user’s session with the site. These cookies are not persisted to the end user’s system.
Persistent cookies make it possible for our web site to recognize you whenever you return to our web site so that the settings you have made during previous visits are recognized so you don’t need to re-set them ever visit. Persistent cookies are persistently stored on the client system (hard drive or elsewhere), the lifetime of these cookies can span from a few seconds to several years. Examples of where PIVAB web sites use persistent cookies are to remember country/language selections; helping with collecting statistics.
