Google Analytics: NIDpersistent6 monthsMost Google users will have a preferences cookie called ‘NID’ in their browsers. A browser sends this cookie with requests to Google’s sites. The NID cookie contains a unique ID Google uses to remember your preferences and other information, such as your preferred language (e.g. English), how many search results you wish to have shown per page (e.g. 10 or 20), and whether or not you wish to have Google’s SafeSearch filter turned on. (see Google's Privacy & Terms for the types of cookie it uses)

Google Analytics: stagpersistent1 minuteGoogle Analytics works by means of tracking code that is added to the pages of this website. Every user is registered with a unique ID, so that Google Analytics can provide Policymakr with insight into how many unique visitors there are to the site, for example, and how many users return. With Google Analytics, Policymakr can survey how often any single user has visited the website, what pages they visited, for how long they stayed and how they interacted with the site. An accurate overview of what data Google Analytics actually tracks is difficult to get hold of, as it is constantly developing and improving, and Google does not provide transparency about their methods. According to their Google Ads Data Protection Terms: Service Information, Google Analytics collects the following types of personal data:
  1. online identifiers including cookie identifiers;
  2. internet protocol addresses and device identifiers;
  3. client identifiers.
To get a general picture of what data Google is gathering, you may take a look at Google's Privacy Policy.
WP Formspersistent10 yearsPolicymakr uses WP Forms to display forms at various locations on its website. When a visitor goes to a page that has WPForms on it, the plugin checks to see if the user has a WPForms UUID cookie (Universally Unique Identifier). If they don’t have one already, the plugin will create a UUID cookie for them. In the paid version, which Policymakr uses, this cookie allows the plugin to connect entries by the same user and is used for some additional features like the Form Abandonment addon. This cookie does not, however, contain or represent any personal information or entry details whatsoever. It’s simply a random collection of numbers and letters that the plugin can use for backend processing.
Cookie Law Info cookiepersistent1 hourThe Cookie Law Info cookie, set by a plugin developed by WebToffee, is a persistent cookie called “viewed_cookie_policy”, set for 365 days. It is used to remember whether the visitor has “accepted” the Policymakr cookie policy (i.e., chosen to close the header). If set, it contains the word “yes”. It doesn’t track anybody’s personal data.
