What kind of cookies are used by the my-access-florida.com website
Cookies, depending on their permanence, can be divided into session or permanent cookies. The former expire when the user closes the browser.

Geolocation Cookies: These Cookies are used to find out which country you are in when you request a website or service. This Cookie is completely anonymous, and is only used to help target content to your location.
Registration Cookies: Registration Cookies are generated once the User has registered or subsequently opened a session, and are used to identify you on the websites and services for the following purposes:
To keep the user identified so that, if he or she closes a service or website, the browser or computer and at another time or another day enters the service or website again, he or she will continue to be identified, thus facilitating his or her navigation without having to identify himself or herself again. This functionality can be deleted if the user presses the “Exit” function, so that this Cookie is deleted and the next time the user enters the website he or she will have to log in to be identified.
Check if the user is authorized to access certain services, for example, to participate in a contest.
Additionally, some services may use third party connectors such as Facebook, Twitter or Google. When the user registers with a service with credentials from a social network or third party identification system, he or she authorises the service to save a persistent cookie that remembers his or her identity and guarantees access to the website until it expires. The user can delete this cookie and revoke access to the website through social networks or third party identification systems by updating their preferences on the specific social network.
