Some websites can be connected to social networks such as Facebook or Twitter. If the User registers for a Service with credentials from a social network, he/she is authorizing the social network to store a Cookie that will remember him/her and guarantee access to the Service until it expires. The User can delete this Cookie and cancel access to the Services through the specific social network, in their preferences.
