PHPSESSID Cookie (Contains a PHP "session ID", expires when the browser is closed)
The "PHPSESSID" cookie is required so that the our site can recognise the same user clicking from page to page. Without it, every page would be treated as the first visit to the site, and anything added to the shopping basket would be instantly forgotten. Online shopping would, therefore, be impossible without the use of this Cookie.
SESSION Cookie (Contains a PHP "session ID", can also contain an email address and encrypted password, expires after one year)
The "session" cookie is intended for the user's convenience, our eCommerce system creates this with a copy of the initial session ID so that our users can be classed as "returning" and the contents of their shopping basket will still be available. If the user signs in with an email address and password, these login details are are also saved so that they can remain logged in when returning (the password is encrypted). If you wish you can sign-out of our site on completion of an order, your login details are then removed from the cookie.
