Do you know why / when / which? Are these cookies in your browser or
your users' browsers? Third party? Session or persistent?
I ask because browser behaviour is the only standard in use, really.
Guess which browser?
Of course, cookies are "allowed" to vanish at random times. I
remember reading something about servers telling browsers which
cookies are important to users and shouldn't be thrown away, but I've
completely forgotten where that was...
