What is a cookie?

What kinds of cookies does DocuShare use and why?
We use different kinds of cookies for various reasons:
- Session cookies
These are temporary cookies that expire (and are automatically erased) whenever you close your browser. We use session cookies to grant access to content and enable commenting (things you have to log in to do).
- Persistent cookies
These usually have a future expiration date and therefore stay in your browser until they expire, or until you manually delete them. We use persistent cookies for functionalities like the "Retain login for future" checkbox, which makes it possible for registered users to return to the site without having to log in.
