What is a cookie?
Cookies are files containing tiny pieces of information which are downloaded on to the device you are using to visit a website. The cookies are then uploaded to the originating website each time you subsequently visit that website, or to another website that recognises that cookie. Cookies undertake a number of different and useful jobs, for example, remembering your preferences, and generally improving your online experience.
There are different types of cookies and although they all work in the same way they do have a number of small differences.
Session cookies last only for the duration of your visit and are deleted when you close your browser. Session cookies facilitate various tasks including enabling a website to identify that a user of a particular device is navigating from page to page thus supporting website security or basic functionality.
Many of the cookies we use are session cookies. For example, they help us to ensure the security of your internet banking session, and can also keep you signed in to internet banking while you move between pages or service your account.
Our session cookies used for security are designed to be very difficult to read, change, access or use except by us when you have an active Internet Banking session. They contain no personal information that can be used to identify an individual.
Persistent cookies last after you have closed your browser, and allow a website to remember your actions and preferences. Sometimes persistent cookies are used by websites to provide targeted advertising based upon the browsing history of the device.
TurkishBank UK does not use persistent cookies.
