How can i make sure that only the website that sets the cookie can read it?

I want some websites to be able to store cookies and use them, but i don't want other sites to use those same cookies. I know how to allow/allow per session/block and i even have cookie managing extensions. What i can't find anywhere is information on who can read those cookies once they are set.

Only the website (server or domain) that sets a cookie can read that cookie, but there can be an iframe embedded with a different domain that sets so called third-party cookies.

You can disable third-party cookies.
