Let us explain what site cookies are and what they do on C2G
What is a cookie?
A cookie is a small piece of data that is sent from a website that you visit and is stored within your web browser. When you visit that website again in the future, the cookie data is recalled from the website to enable certain functionality and display select, dynamic content and actions. Cookies are unique to the website from which they are set. If you would like to learn more about what a cookie is, we suggest reading this article.
Below is a list of the possible cookies that C2G places within your browser and how we use them to better serve you:
- JSESSIONID: Used to store your unique session ID. Without it, login, checkout, and form submissions are not possible within the C2G family of sites.
- CUSTOMER_NAME: Used to store basic information after logging in, such as your name. This is used to personalize the site upon your return.
- tier: Used to display the correct catalog information based on the user's account.
- country-code: Used to redirect to your previously selected country when revisiting c2g.com.
- __ga: Used by Google Analytics to track visits, user types, and sales through our websites. This information is at an aggregate level and no personally identifying data is captured.
- SAPLB_*: Used for load balancing purposes.
- product-list-view: Used for remembering which view you last used on a product list.
- PREVIOUS_PRODUCTS: Used to display which products a customer last viewed.
- search-facet-preferences: Used to persist which search facets are collapsed, from search to search.
- recent-searches: Used to remember recent searches a customer performed so they can find the same products using the same searches.
- recoverbasketCTGUS: On our e-commerce sites, this allows C2G to recover your shopping cart contents from a previous visit and re-populate your current basket.
- last-page-section: Used to maintain the previously seen breadcrumb when visiting a document hosted within our 'Doc Viewer'.
- bar-browser: Used to no longer show a message to upgrade to a newer browser after a user interacts with the message.
- holiday-*: Used to hide special holiday messaging.
