updated 10 months ago
A cookie is a small piece of data that Gist sends from your website, stored in a web browser and downloaded to your computer or mobile device when you visit that website. The cookie is then sent back to Gist on each subsequent visit, which is essential for you to be able to identify and track the user's activity automatically.
Gist's tracking code sets two "first-party" cookies when a visitor lands on your website. We take the privacy of your data seriously and these cookies cannot be read by Gist on other sites, or by other sites using the Gist tracking code. All cookies are unique to your domain.
Here are the cookies set and used by the Gist tracking code, their purpose, duration and a brief description:
|Cookie Name||Purpose||Default Duration||Description|
|gist_id_[workspace_id]||Unique anonymous identifier||12 months||A random ID is assigned to each unique anonymous visitor to keep track of their session across page views|
|gist_identified_[workspace_id]||To know whether the visitor is identified or not||12 months||A boolean variable that is set to true when an identify call occurs.|
