HttpOnly cookies - they cannot be accessed by user via another protocol, excepting HTTP and only the site that sent them can use them.

Third-party cookies - they belong to a domain different from the one shown in the address bar. This sort of cookies typically appears when web pages feature content from external websites, such as banner advertisements and they can memorize the navigation history of a user on all websites that display the same banner advertisement.

Zombie cookies – they are cookies that are automatically recreated after being deleted. They are used by the services of internet traffic monitoring and analysis and they are memorized outside the browser.
