Cookies are text files that can be created when a website is visited and then stored on the user's device/computer. Every cookie is tied to the respective domain and can only be read or altered where it was set.
Cookies are classified as 1st or 3rd-party cookies. 1st-party cookies are set in the domain of the website that is currently being actively visited. 3rd-party cookies on the other hand are set in a different domain that does not correspond to the page currently being visited.
Tracking with Webtrekk is possible both with 1st-party (client side) and 3rd-party (server side) cookies.
The Cookie-Control plugin allows you to access the "properties" of the Webtrekk cookies. Cookies can be:
- assigned a new trackDomain and/or trackID or
- migrated from a client cookie to a server cookie (1st-party cookie to 3rd-party cookie).
The attached document describes the configuration and technical integration needed to use the Cookie-Control plugin.
You can find the latest techniscal documentation at this link: Cookie Control Plugin.
