What is the c-referrer cookie?

The c-referrer cookie is primarily a Performance Cookie we use to track statistical information about people who visit our website.

The cookie tracks how users were referred to our website and which page they first accessed. We only store this information after users sign up to use Cognito Forms and consent to our Terms of Use and Privacy Policy. In some cases, c-referrer also acts as a Functionality Cookie, when either the referring page or the landing page information makes these users eligible for special referral discounts on paid plans.

In all cases, this is a first-party cookie and we only save and use information in this cookie after users sign up to use Cognito Forms. We do not use this cookie for targeted advertising and only use this information to improve our product and enhance the experience for our customers.
