Necessary - they are absolutely necessary for the proper functioning of the website or functionalities that the user wants to use.
Functional - they are important for the operation of the website:
Business - they enable the implementation of the business model on the basis of which the website is made available; their blocking will not result in the unavailability of all functionalities, but may reduce the level of service provision due to the inability of the website owner to implement the revenue subsidizing its operation.

Session cookies - "cookies" placed for the time of using the browser (session) and deleted after its closing or logging out from the website.
Permanent cookies - are not deleted when the browser is closed and remain on the user's equipment for a specific period or without validity (depending on the settings of the website owner).
