Third-party domains is the count of organisations allowed by the webmaster to trace your across the site. These cookies may be set for various purposes, like tracking ads displayed on the website, collection of statistics, targeted advertising etc. This website allows 7 other websites to track your activity.
Persistent cookies are the cookies that are preserved through browser shutdowns. This means, even if you close this page today and ever return there in future, the website will know you're a returning visitor. This may be used for "remember me" features, as well as persistent user tracking. These cookies, especially if set by third party organisations, are powerful tool for monitoring your activities across all the websites you visit. This website sets 17 persistent cookies with average life-time of 631 days and longest 1679 days.
Session cookies are cleared when you close your browser and allow the website to identify user's state — such as logged-in users. They are mostly considered harmless because they cannot be used for long-term user tracking. This site sets 7 session cookies.

XmlHttpRequest from a website that is not in the same origin, which is a precaution against various types of data stealing attacks. The target server has to explicitly allow the origin domain using the
Access-Control-Allow-Origin (ACAO) header, or it may allow all origins to access it using a wildcard
*. The latter however creates a potential security issue if the website in question is transactional and processing sensitive data, so the wildcard should be only used on websites consciously offering public APIs.
The header sets permissive AJAX access by using wildcard origin
*. It may be OK if the website is a publicly accessible REST API but otherwise it should be not present at all
A non-standard but widely accepted header introduced originally by Microsoft to disable "content sniffing" or heuristic content type discovery in absence or mismatch of a proper HTTP
Content-Type declaration, which led to a number of web attacks. In general, presence of the header with its only defined value of
nosniff is considered as part of a properly secured HTTP response.

1 became part of canonical set of "secure" HTTP headers. Over time, vulnerabilities in the "sanitizing" mode filter were found, so
1; mode=block became the recommended value. Some companies decided that they don't really need a browser-side XSS filter to mess with their web services which are XSS-free anyway and they became consciously disabling the XSS filter by setting the header to
