What are cookies?
Cookies and other similar technologies, such as local shared objects and flash cookies are tools used by Web servers to store and recover information about website visitors, and also to ensure the correct functioning of the website.
A cookie is a small file of letters and numbers that we store on your browser or the hard drive of your computer if you agree. Cookies contain information that is transferred to your computer’s hard drive.
We use the following cookies:
_hjid > Hotjar
Hotjar cookie is set when the customer first lands on a page with the Hotjar script. It is used to persist the Hotjar User ID, unique to that site on the browser. This ensures that behavior in subsequent visits to the same site will be attributed to the same user ID.
This cookie expires after 365 days.
_hjTLDTest > Hotjar
When the Hotjar script executes we try to determine the most generic cookie path we should use instead of the page hostname. This is done so that cookies can be shared across subdomains (where applicable). To determine this, we try to store the _hjTLDTest cookie for different URL substring alternatives until it fails. After this check, the cookie is removed.
This cookie expires after the session.
_ga > Google Analytics
We use Google Analytics which is a web analytics tool that helps us understand how visitors engage with our Website. Google Analytics uses first-party cookies to track user interactions, this helps us to collect information about how visitors use our Website. This information is used to compile reports and to help us improve our Website. The reports disclose website trends without identifying individual visitors.
This cookie expires after 2 years.
_zlcmid > Zendesk
We use Zendesk Chat cookie to store visitor’s ID for the chat pop-up authentication.
This cookie expires after 365 days
