Which cookies does Piwik create?


Hi (again :slight_smile: )!

I’m very interested in privacy and this is why I’m using Piwik. I’m currently working on my site’s privacy information and cookie policy and wondered what cookies Piwik places and for what. I didn’t find such an overview - can someone help me out?
I’m especially interested in _pk_ses… - what is it used for?

Thanks in advance!

Hi Matt,

thank you for the link - I should have found it myself!
Unfortunately, it doesn’t really explain what those cookies are used for. :frowning:

so long … Nicolai
