Cookie usage with Browsi

Which cookies does Browsi use?

Browsi uses two different cookies dropped on the publisher site. These two cookies are considered to be first party cookies, meaning they live on the publisher domain and are not shared or synced with other domains. The 2 cookies are persistent cookies which hold a set expiration date.

  1. Browsi Session Cookie
    Used to gather the data around the user session on the publisher’s site and, by default, expires after 30 minutes of inactivity by the user (most common definition of session by Google analytics https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/2731565?hl=en).
  2. Browsi User ID Cookie
    Browsi marks users by using a specific user key that is generated per user, that key is created upon user’s first encounter with Browsi on a specific domain (no cross domain). That key is stored in a cookie, with 1 year expiration date.
