TYPES OF COOKIES USED BY NVIDIA

Session Cookies
“User input cookies”, or session cookies, are used to keep track of a user’s input when submitting online data and allow users to be recognized from one page or selection to another. We also use session cookies to provide information you’ve requested through an action , such as clicking a button or filling out a web form. Session cookies always expire after the browsing session is over.

Persistent Cookies
Persistent cookies help websites remember your information, browsing history, and settings when you visit them in the future. This results in faster and more convenient access. Persistent cookies also help us personalize and improve your experience, which you can opt-in to at anytime through the NVIDIA Privacy Center.

Persistent cookies stay in a folder on your device unless you delete them manually, or until they are automatically deleted based on the retention period of the cookie’s folder.
