1. What is a cookie?

A cookie is a type of digital tag that stores your online visit. Almost every website uses cookie technology. The cookie is downloaded by your Internet browser during your first visit to a website. When you next visit the site from the same device, the cookie and the information it contains are sent back to the original website (original cookies) or to another site to which it belongs (third-party cookies). The website can therefore detect that it has already been opened using this browser.

2. Why are we using cookies and what kind of cookies?

The cookies used on our site are categorized as follows:

  • Strictly necessary

  • Analytic

A distinction should be made between persistent and session cookies:

  • Persistent cookies: these cookies remain on a User's device for the period of time specified in the cookie. They are activated each time that the User visits the website that created that particular cookie.

  • Session cookies: these cookies allow website operators to link the actions of a User during a browser session. A browser session starts when a User opens the browser window and finishes when they close the browser window. Session cookies are created temporarily. Once you close the browser, all session cookies are deleted.

These cookies do not collect any information that could identify you and are only used to help us improve how our Website works, understand what interests our Users and measure how effective our content is.

Our analytic cookies are mainly managed for us by Google Analytics. However, we don't allow the third party to use the cookies for any purpose other than those listed above.

_hjRecordingLastActivity

This should be found in sessionStorage (as opposed to cookies). This gets updated when a visitor recording starts and when data is sent through the WebSocket (the visitor performs an action that Hotjar records).

Session

hjTLDTest

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.

Session

_hjUserAttributesHash

User Attributes sent through the Hotjar Identify API are cached for the duration of the session in order to know when an attribute has changed and needs to be updated.

Session

_hjCachedUserAttributes

This cookie stores User Attributes which are sent through the Hotjar Identify API, whenever the user is not in the sample. These attributes will only be saved if the user interacts with a Hotjar Feedback tool.

Session

_hjLocalStorageTest

This cookie is used to check if the Hotjar Tracking Script can use local storage. If it can, a value of 1 is set in this cookie. The data stored in_hjLocalStorageTest has no expiration time, but it is deleted immediately after creating it so the expected storage time is under 100ms.

N/A

_hjptid

This cookie is set for logged in users of Hotjar, who have Admin Team Member permissions. It is used during pricing experiments to show the Admin consistent pricing across the site.
