How does NHMF use cookies?

Matamo

We use Matamo to provide privacy-first, cookieless analytics.

There may still be a few essential cookies created in specific cases:

  • when you exclude yourself from being tracked using the cookie method or using the iframe opt-out method, Matomo will create a cookie piwik_ignore set on the domain of your Matomo server (a temporary short-lived cookie called MATOMO_SESSID will also be created).
  • when you’re asking for consent before tracking visitors, two cookies may be created: mtm_consent and mtm_consent_removed.
  • _pk_testcookie is also created without any identifier and is directly deleted (it is only used to check whether the visitor’s browser supports cookies)
