- Session cookie
A session cookie is automatically removed by the browser as soon as the session is terminated. This happens when the browser is closed.
- Ever cookie
An ever cookie has a fixed expiration date on which the browser removes it.
Cookies are also divided into first-party and third-party cookies:
- First-party cookie
First-party cookies are set in the domain of the website that is currently being actively visited.
- Third-party cookie
Third-party cookies are set in a different domain that does not correspond to the page currently visited.
With Webtrekk, it is possible to use tracking with first-party (client side) as well as with third-party (server side) cookies.
The Cookie Control plugin allows you to access the properties of Webtrekk cookies. For cookies, it is possible to
- assign a new tack domain and/ or track ID,
- convert a client cookie to a server cookie (first-party to third-party cookie).
In this document, you will learn how to integrate the Cookie Control plugin.
