Cookie collection with Cludo
With Cludo, cookies are collected to gather information about user behavior. This data helps improve user experience and is used for the statistics you see in My Cludo.
Cludo uses local storage, which is basically a successor to cookies so they are effectively treated the same under EU cookie laws and GDPR. The data stored in local storage is a session ID, which is used to determine unique versus total and ineffective searches.
Types of cookies
|Unique ID for the session: Connects user sessions across multiple pageviews||Indicates the beginning of the current session, specified by _cludoSessionId_|
These cookies do not expire automatically and will stay until removed manually.
What happens if I disable cookies?
If you choose to disable cookies, you won't be able to see unique searches, as cookies are needed in order to gather this data. This means that the Ineffective Searches analytics won't be holding any useful information. Furthermore, remaining analytics sections will only show the total number of searches and 1 unique search.
Because we are unable to track unique searches when cookies are disabled, the account will also become ineligible for Intents. Turning off cookies removes our tracking of sessionId, which is what associates Intents with their constituent queries.
