Cookies are files with small amount of data which may include an anonymous unique identifier. Cookies are sent to your browser from a website and stored on your device. Tracking technologies also used are beacons, tags, and scripts to collect and track information and to improve and analyze our Services.
You can instruct your browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. However, if you do not accept cookies, you may not be able to use some portions of our Services.
Examples of Cookies we use:
- Session Cookies. We use Session Cookies to operate our Services.
- Analytics Cookies. We use analytics cookies to improve the quality of our Services.
List of cookies we use:
- Cookies in the account (the.hiveos.farm):
- necessary authentication cookies (jwtt)
- necessary Cloudflare cookies (__cfduid)
- analytics cookies (_gat, _gat_conversionTracker, _ga, _gid)
- Cookies on the website (hiveon.com):
- necessary Intercom cookies (intercom-id-[app_id], intercom-session-[app_id])
- necessary Cloudflare cookies (__cfduid)
- Analytics, Facebook and Google cookies (_ga, _gid, _fbp, _gat)
- Settings cookies (settings-gdpr-GA-accept, settings-gdpr-GTM-accept, settings-gdpr-FB-accept)
The functions of the cookies we use:
- jwtt — the session ID
- __cfduid — cookie associated with websites using CloudFlare (required to speed up page loading)
- _gat — limits the frequency of requests
- _gat_conversionTracker — limits the frequency of requests
- _gali — this cookie is associated with Google Analytics. This cookie is used to collect information about how visitors use our site
- _ga — allows to to distinguish users
- _gid — allows to to distinguish users
- intercom-id-[app_id] — an anonymous visitor identification cookie. Default expiration is 9 months
- intercom-session-[app_id] — is used to keep track of sessions and remember logins and conversations. Default expiration is 7 days
- _fbp — allows to to distinguish users
- _hjSessionUser[site_id] — Hotjar cookie that is set when a user first lands on a page with the Hotjar script. It is used to persist the Hotjar User ID, unique to that site on the browser. This ensures that behavior in subsequent visits to the same site will be attributed to the same user ID. Default expiration is 365 days
- _hjSession[site_id] — A cookie that holds the current session data. This ensues that subsequent requests within the session window will be attributed to the same Hotjar session. Default expiration is 30 minutes
- _hjClosedSurveyInvites — Hotjar cookie that is set once a user interacts with an External Link Survey invitation modal. It is used to ensure that the same invite does not reappear if it has already been shown. Default expiration is 365 days
- _hjDonePolls — Hotjar cookie that is set once a user completes a survey using the On-site Survey widget. It is used to ensure that the same survey does not reappear if it has already been filled in. Default expiration is 365 days
- _hjMinimizedPolls — Hotjar cookie that is set once a user minimizes an On-site Survey widget. It is used to ensure that the widget stays minimized when the user navigates through your site. Default expiration is 365 days
- _hjShownFeedbackMessage — Hotjar cookie that is set when a user minimizes or completes Incoming Feedback. This is done so that the Incoming Feedback will load as minimized immediately if the user navigates to another page where it is set to show. Default expiration is 365 days
- _hjSessionTooLarge — Causes Hotjar to stop collecting data if a session becomes too large. This is determined automatically by a signal from the WebSocket server if the session size exceeds the limit. Expires on session end
- _hjSessionRejected — If present, this cookie will be set to '1' for the duration of a user's session, if Hotjar rejected the session from connecting to our WebSocket due to server overload. This cookie is only applied in extremely rare situations to prevent severe performance issues. Expires on session end
- _hjSessionResumed — A cookie that is set when a session/recording is reconnected to Hotjar servers after a break in connection. Expires on session end
- _hjid — Hotjar cookie that is set when the customer first lands on a page with the Hotjar script. It is used to persist the Hotjar User ID, unique to that site on the browser. This ensures that behavior in subsequent visits to the same site will be attributed to the same user ID. Default expiration is 365 days
- _hjRecordingLastActivity — This should be found in Session storage (as opposed to cookies). This gets updated when a user recording starts and when data is sent through the WebSocket (the user performs an action that Hotjar records). Expires on session end
- _hjTLDTest — When the Hotjar script executes we try to determine the most generic cookie path we should use, instead of the page hostname. This is done so that cookies can be shared across subdomains (where applicable). To determine this, we try to store the _hjTLDTest cookie for different URL substring alternatives until it fails. After this check, the cookie is removed. Expires on session end
- _hjUserAttributesHash — User Attributes sent through the Hotjar Identify API are cached for the duration of the session in order to know when an attribute has changed and needs to be updated. Expires on session end
- _hjCachedUserAttributes — This cookie stores User Attributes which are sent through the Hotjar Identify API, whenever the user is not in the sample. Collected attributes will only be saved to Hotjar servers if the user interacts with a Hotjar Feedback tool, but the cookie will be used regardless of whether a Feedback tool is present. Expires on session end
- _hjLocalStorageTest — This cookie is used to check if the Hotjar Tracking Script can use local storage. If it can, a value of 1 is set in this cookie. The data stored in_hjLocalStorageTest has no expiration time, but it is deleted almost immediately after it is created. Expires in less than 100ms
- _hjIncludedInPageviewSample — This cookie is set to let Hotjar know whether that user is included in the data sampling defined by your site's pageview limit. Default expiration is 30 minutes
- _hjIncludedInSessionSample — This cookie is set to let Hotjar know whether that user is included in the data sampling defined by your site's daily session limit. Default expiration is 30 minutes
- _hjAbsoluteSessionInProgress — This cookie is used to detect the first pageview session of a user. This is a True/False flag set by the cookie. Default expiration is 30 minutes
- _hjFirstSeen — This is set to identify a new user’s first session. It stores a true/false value, indicating whether this was the first time Hotjar saw this user. It is used by Recording filters to identify new user sessions. Expires on session end
- _hjViewportId — This stores information about the user viewport such as size and dimensions. Expires on session end
- _hjRecordingEnabled — This is added when a Recording starts and is read when the recording module is initialized to see if the user is already in a recording in a particular session. Expires on session end
- settings-gdpr-GA-accept — used to save cookie settings
- settings-gdpr-GTM-accept — used to save cookie settings
- settings-gdpr-FB-accept — used to save cookie settings
- settings-gdpr-hotjar-accept — used to save cookie settings
How to manage cookies
You can manage and delete cookies:
- Removing cookies from your device. You can remove all cookies that are already on your device by clearing the browsing history of your browser. This will remove all cookies from all websites that you have visited. Please note that you may also lose some saved information (e.g. saved login details, website preferences).
- Managing website-specific cookies. For more detailed control over website-specific cookies, check the privacy and cookie settings in your preferred browser.
- Blocking cookies. You can set most modern browsers to prevent any cookies being placed on your device, but in this case may then have to manually adjust some preferences every time you visit a website or a page. Due to this, some functions may not work properly.
