What are cookies?
Cookies are small files set on your browser which records data to allow us to measure the performance of our website whilst also improving your experience as you navigate through it.
What is the difference between 1st party cookies and 3rd party cookies?
First party cookies are cookies set by the site itself. For example, if a visitor visits northwesthandtherapy.co.uk and this website sets a cookie, this cookie is called a first-party cookie. We use 1st party cookies mainly for Google Maps usage and WordPress Jetpack.
Third party cookies are set from a different domain than the site that the visitor is currently visiting. Third party cookies can be blocked via your browser settings.
What type of cookies does the website set?
Cookies set by Google and WordPress
Data Used: In order to check login activity and potentially block fraudulent attempts, the following information is used: attempting user’s IP address, attempting user’s email address/username (i.e. according to the value they were attempting to use during the login process), and all IP-related HTTP headers attached to the attempting user.
Activity Tracked: Failed login attempts (these include IP address and user agent). We also set a cookie (
jpp_math_pass) for 1 day to remember if/when a user has successfully completed a math captcha to prove that they’re a real human. Learn more about this cookie.
Data Synced (?): Failed login attempts, which contain the user’s IP address, attempted username or email address, and user agent information.
Data Used: IP address, WordPress.com user ID (if logged in), WordPress.com username (if logged in), user agent, visiting URL, referring URL, timestamp of event, browser language, country code. Important: The site owner does not have access to any of this information via this feature. For example, a site owner can see that a specific post has 285 views, but he/she cannot see which specific users/accounts viewed that post. Stats logs — containing visitor IP addresses and WordPress.com usernames (if available) — are retained by Automattic for 28 days and are used for the sole purpose of powering this feature.
