A cookie is a piece of information that is placed on the user’s web browser when accessing and/or using the services that stores text and which can later be read back by the services or third parties. Cookies are used to recognize the browser and the user as unique.
Cookies are session cookies or persistent cookies, they last only for one browser session or continue on the browser until they are affirmatively deleted. Cookies can be managed through the web browser’s option settings.
2.2 Pixel Tags
A pixel tag is a small tag or graphic element placed on certain parts of the services or other websites, in emails or in certain other downloadable content, but not on the computer, mobile device or browser of the user, except if the user downloads the content that contains such tags.
Pixel tags do not store information on the computer, mobile device or browser (although they are occasionally downloaded if contained in an email or other downloadable content) so cannot be managed except by deleting the content in which the tag is contained.

The “local shared object” is similar to the cookies, but it is stored on the computer or mobile device, and not in the browser, and may contain more than text. The control of these need modes different from cookies.
These are stored by the computer or mobile device, and can be managed individually.
