A cookie is a small file of letters and numbers that we store on your browser or the hard drive of your computer if you agree. Cookies contain information that is transferred to your computer's hard drive.
We use the following cookies:
We use a third party marketing automation tool called Pardot to set cookies.
Pardot tracks visitor activities on our website by setting cookies on their browsers. These cookies are set in order to remember preferences when an individual returns to our site, such as form field values. We also set a cookie for Pardot users who are logged into Pardot’s app, which allows us to maintain the login session and remember table filters.
Pardot sets three cookies:
Visitors that have “do not track” settings enabled on their browser will not have their activities tracked while on our site.
To comply with the EU privacy directive, tracking opt-in can be enabled in your Pardot account by country. Visitors to our website from selected countries will receive a message at the top of the landing page on their first visit requesting permission to track their activities. More details are available in Tracking Opt-in by Country. If you click “do not track”, a small cookie is placed on their browser that signals to Pardot not to record or remember any of their activities while on our site.
With tracking enabled, visitors should not notice anything out of the ordinary other than the fact that we will “remember” the data they submit through a Pardot form. For example, their email address will be prefilled when they return, fields that were already completed will not display again unless they’re set to “always display” in the form, and there may be new conditional fields displaying that the visitor had not viewed before.
We set the cookie on the tracker (CName) and Pardot domains, so for example, www2.site.com, https://pi.pardot.com and also the root, *.pardot.com.
The cookie duration is set to 10 years.
No. Pardot cookies are simply a numeric identifier that allow us to recognize repeat visitors, and have no functionality outside the Pardot system.
Pardot relies on being able to set cookies on users’ browsers. If cookies are disabled (generally or selectively), or if a browser extension (such as Ghostery) is enabled, Pardot cookies may not be set properly and prospect activity may not be tracked. For Pardot users’ logins to remain active, cookies must be enabled and any cookie-blocking extensions must be disabled for https://pi.pardot.com.
