What’s a cookie?
We’re obviously not talking about a cookie you can snack on. In the Internet’s world, a “cookie” is a piece of information stored on your computer or device by your internet browser. It records how many times you go on a website, which pages you’re visiting on said website during each session, and so on. A cookie can be used to analyse traffic, and for advertising and marketing purposes.
What type of cookies do we use and why?
If you don’t wish your data to be stored on WordPress, I’m afraid the only solution is to avoid commenting on the website.
I have only implemented the Google Analytics pixel on this website, as I do not wish to use your data for any other purpose than analysing the traffic I’m getting on the blog. I’m an SEO professional so I’m always interested in knowing how my pages are performing. However, these data I’m receiving on Google Analytics are anonymised. It means that I won’t store data that would allow me to identify you on Google Analytics.
I’m using Mailchimp to manage my newsletter. Each email has a “web beacon pixel” which is used to tell the provider if you’ve opened the email and/or clicked on any links within that email. You can delete the pixel by deleting the email.
It may also drop a cookie on your computer or device to make sure you don’t see newsletter pop-ups on my website more than once within a couple of minutes within the same session.
As for my use of such data, I’m simply using it to know if you liked the email I just sent. It helps me improve the quality of the newsletter and to get to know you a little bit better.
