Unclassified Cookies are cookies that are not used in the same category as the other types of cookies. They do not fall under any of the other categories such as “First Party” or “Third Party”.

Unclassified Cookies are usually set by websites that you have visited, but they can also be set by advertisement services or social media platforms.

Unclassified cookies can be used for a variety of reasons, including:

  • To monitor your browsing activity on one site so that you see ads for similar products when you visit another site;
  • To track where you go after leaving a site;
  • To prevent multiple clicks from the same computer (so-called "click fraud");
  • To tailor content and make it easier to use by remembering your preferences.
