An 'essential cookie' is the most common used and for example is used in the 'shopping cart' functionality where it helps to save items as you progress through a site and are not forgotten when you reach the 'checkout'. These cookies are deleted when you leave the site.

Non-Essential Cookies (Persistent Cookies)
Another example of common practice is authentication, this remembers your 'log-in' details when re-visiting a website. Other possible features include language selection, menu preferences, internal site bookmarks or favourites, amongst many others.
