1st party vs 3rd party Cookies?


Can you tell me the difference between a 1st & 3rd party cookies? And will blocking 3rd party cookies eliminate pop up ads?

Thanks - Denise

A first-party cookie originates on the web site you are currently viewing (site customization, Login, etc.). A third-party cookie originates on a web site different from the one you are currently viewing (ads, shopping cart, etc.). Also, any unsecured content sent over http using SSL (https) is considered third-party.

Advertisers/marketers have found and invented so many ways to display ads that the answer is no (blocking 3rd party cookies will not stop all of the pop-ups you get). You'll need to use a pop-up blocker or a browser that has a pop-up blocking feature. In the case of IE, the new Google Toolbar has a pop-up blocking feature.
