The cookies that are saved by umantis are listed in the table below, with a “Name”, “Purpose” and “Retention period” for each.

Examples of cookies that could be set by third-party providers. (Umantis has no influence on whether such cookies are set):

Cookie name Purpose Retention period
_ga, _gat Anonymous cookies from Google Analytics (for more details, see Cookie-Usage). Same as the length of your browser session
emos_jcsid Checks whether the anonymous visitor already has an open browser session, in order to avoid double tracking. Same as the length of your browser session
emos_jcvid Checks whether the anonymous visitor already has an open browser session, in order to avoid double tracking. Same as the length of your browser session
_et_coid eTracker cookie Same as the length of your browser session

Other cookies are set to support the user interface, e.g. expansion or collapsing of searches (e.g. actionbartoggle), placement and collapsing of blocks on main screens (mainscreen_content_left_sortOrder, showblocktitle_xxxx_toggleState). These are created by JavaScript frameworks or by separate scripts, and remain active for different periods of time. They simply keep track of the visual state for the user, since umantis does not store such settings in the database.
