Cookies set by the website owner (in this case, Grand Rapids Jeep Club) are called “first party cookies.” Cookies set by parties other than the website owner are called “third party cookies.” Third party cookies enable third party features or functionality to be provided on or through the website (e.g. like advertising, interactive content and analytics).
