Cookies used by third-party providers in embedded content
Websites that provide content like pictures, videos or status feeds will sometimes set cookies when you view the content so they can do things like count how many people have watched a video, seen a picture, or read a status. They may also attempt to determine if you have an active account with their service so they can personalise what you see, such as a list of your friends that have also viewed or liked the embedded content.
