If a cookie’s scheme and domain match the current page, the cookie is considered to be a same-site / first-party cookie. If they don’t match, the cookie is considered a cross-site / third-party cookie.

Other notes

  • Look into how third-party cookies are used for things like tracking user behavior or displaying target ads.
  • There are various cookie-related regulations that you should be aware of (e.g., informing users how your site uses cookies or allowing them to opt out of receiving cookies). Using specialized cookie banners can help make it easier to comply with these regulations
