What are cookies?

A cookie is a small text file that a website saves on your computer or mobile device when you visit the site. It enables the website to remember your actions and preferences (such as login, language, font size and other display preferences) over a period of time, so you don’t have to keep re-entering them whenever you come back to the site or browse from one page to another.

These cookies collect information about how visitors use a website, for instance which pages visitors go to most often, and if they get error messages from web pages. These cookies don’t collect information that identifies a visitor. All information these cookies collect is aggregated and therefore anonymous. It is only used to improve how a website works. Here are the Performance Cookies we use:

_custom_data_[hash] Clicky Analytics This cookie only gets set if you are using our custom data tracking feature. Whenever you set custom data for a session, we put it in a cookie so every time that visitor comes back to your site in the future, the same data will get attached to their new session, even if they don't login or follow whatever processed was used to originally declare these variables. Note: Each piece of data you attach has a 'key' and a 'value', so each unique key will be its own cookie. For example, _custom_data_email or _custom_data_username. This cookie is set to more or less never expire. This cookie can be disabled by setting the sticky_data_disable tracking option. N/A
_eventqueue Clicky Analytics This cookie stores an array of mouse events that can't be guaranteed to be logged to our servers before the current page is unloaded. The purpose is to store these events in a queue so on the subsequent page view, these events can be processed and logged. This is a session cookie so it will expire when the visitor leaves your web site. N/A

The value of this cookie will also be set as a third party cookie with the name of 'cluid', if such a cookie does not exist. The purpose of the third party cookie is for web sites with multiple domains and who want to track visitor sessions across multiple domains, which is not possible with first party cookies. These 'uid' cookies are set to more or less never expire. N/A
_referrer_og Clicky Analytics This cookie stores the external referrer for a visitor, so that on future visits the same referrer will be attached to their sessions. This cookie expires after 90 days but will be set again or updated on future visits if they arrive at your site from a link on another site, whether or not it's the same referrer. When this cookie is updated, the expiration date is reset to 90 days from the time of the new visit. This cookie can be disabled by setting the sticky_data_disable tracking option. N/A
_utm_og Clicky Analytics This cookie stores dynamic (UTM) campaign variables, so that on future visits the same campaign data will be attached to their sessions.

If you disable cookies, heatmap data cannot be logged. This is a session cookie so it will expire when the visitor leaves your web site. N/A
ignore Clicky Analytics helps ignore your own visits to your own web sites N/A
no_tracky_[site_id] Clicky Analytics When a site stops using the Service, it is quite common for the web master to leave the code installed, which is against the Terms of service. For high traffic sites, this can use a lot of extra bandwidth and CPU resources on our servers. This cookie is set whenever data is sent in for a site that is disabled. It tells our tracking code to stop sending data to us. This cookie expires after 1 hour but will be set again upon future visits by the same visitor, until the Code is removed from the offending web site. N/A
osa Clicky Analytics N/A N/A
unpoco_[site_id] Clicky Analytics The Code sends 'pings' when a visitor sits on a single page. This allows the Service to more accurately track 'time on site' values. Because this feature uses a lot of extra bandwidth, it requires a paid account. For non-paid accounts, this cookie is set to tell the Code not to send these pings. This cookie expires after 1 hour but will be set again upon future visits by the same visitor. N/A
