 Google Maps  1P_JAR  1 month  Performance  Associated with the googlemap service linked to geolocation.
 Hot Jar  _hjClosedSurveyInvites 365 days   Performance  Hotjar cookie. This cookie is set once a visitor interacts with a Survey invitation modal popup. It is used to ensure that the same invite does not re-appear if it has already been shown.
 Hot Jar _hjDonePolls   365 days  Performance  Hotjar cookie. This cookie is set once a visitor completes a poll using the Feedback Poll widget. It is used to ensure that the same poll does not re-appear if it has already been filled in.
Hot Jar   _hjMinimizedPolls 365 days   Performance  Hotjar cookie. This cookie is set once a visitor minimizes a Feedback Poll widget. It is used to ensure that the widget stays minimizes when the visitor navigates through your site.
 Hot Jar  _hjDoneTestersWidgets  365 days  Performance  Hotjar cookie. This cookie is set once a visitor submits their information in the Recruit User Testers widget. It is used to ensure that the same form does not re-appear if it has already been filled in.

 Hot Jar  _hjShownFeedbackMessage  365 days  Performance  This cookie is set when a visitor minimizes or completes Incoming Feedback. This is done so that the Incoming Feedback will load as minimized immediately if they navigate to another page where it is set to show.
Hot Jar   _hjid 365 days   Performance  Hotjar cookie. This cookie 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.
 Hot Jar  _hjRecordingLastActivity  Session  Performance  This should be found in sessionStorage (as opposed to cookies). This gets updated when a visitor recording starts and when data is sent through the WebSocket (the visitor performs an action that Hotjar records).
 Hot Jar  hjTLDTest  Session  Performance  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.
 Hot Jar  _hjUserAttributesHash Session   Performance  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.
Hot Jar   _hjCachedUserAttributes Session   Performance  This cookie stores User Attributes which are sent through the Hotjar Identify API, whenever the user is not in the sample. These attributes will only be saved if the user interacts with a Hotjar Feedback tool.
 Hot Jar  _hjLocalStorageTest N/A   Performance  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 immediately after creating it so the expected storage time is under 100ms.
 Hot Jar  _hjAbsoluteSessionInProgress  30 mins  Performance  The cookie is set so Hotjar can track the beginning of the user's journey for a total session count. It does not contain any identifiable information.
