First-party cookies: First-party cookies are permanent cookies that are stored on the computer and only lose their validity when the expiry date assigned to them has expired. The word "party" refers to the domain from which the cookie originated. In contrast to third-party cookies, first-party cookies usually come from the website operator itself. They are therefore not accessible to browsers across domains. For example, website A assigns a cookie A, which is not recognized by website B, but can only be recognized by website A. This means that data cannot be passed on to third parties.
Third-party cookies: With a third-party cookie, the cookie is set and recorded by a third party. These cookies are mostly used by advertisers who use their cookies on other websites to collect information about website visitors using the cookies. These are data records that are stored in the user's web browser when he visits a page with the advertisement. If he visits a page with advertising from the same provider again, he will be recognized.
