What is a virtual cookie

Avatar

Level 1

A KB article on the adobe site refers to a virtual cookie stating "Each visit is assigned a visit number, based on a virtual cookie" http://helpx.adobe.com/analytics/kb/comparing-return-visits.html

While I know what 1st party and 3rd party cookie is. Can someone please help me with what a virtual cookie is?

Thanks.
