What are session cookies?

This web site uses "session cookies" for the Join Email List and Submit Gigs forms.  A "session cookie" is a non-persistent cookie which a web browser agrees to accept and carry - but only for the current web surfing session.  Unlike regular cookies which are persistent and can be retained and carried in a browser for years, session cookies are kept in memory and are not written to the system's permanent storage.  They are discarded when the browser or computer system is shut down.

What are first-party cookies?

So called "first-party" cookies are those offered to your web browser by the same web site you are visiting.  While these cookies - whether they are session-cookies or persistent-cookies - do allow your movement around the site to be followed by the site, they are not generally regarded as a privacy concern because they can not be seen or accessed by other sites.

First-party cookies are what allow you to be recognized by active web sites where you have accounts, like news sites or eBay or Amazon.  The first-party cookie your browser carries uniquely identifies your web browser and keeps you from having to log back onto a web site every time you return.

What are third-party cookies?

So called "third-party" cookies are sneaky cookies that were never really meant to happen and they are being exploited by advertising and marketing firms and others to track your actions and movements as you surf the web.  It is best to block third-party cookies.
