Dear support team,

the data protection of our website doesn't allow persistent and third-party cookies. I noticed, that WPML uses cookies. Can you tell me, if these are only session cookies? And if they are set by our domain or yours (as example for "third-party)?

I guess, that they are persistent. In that case I would need to know, which function I have to deactivate, so that no cookie(s) will be set.

Thank you and best wishes

Natalie

Hello Natalie,

This is Sarah. Dat asked me to jump in and assist with your question.

In reply to:

"Can you tell me, if these are only session cookies? And if they are set by our domain or yours (as example for "third-party)?"

No, they are not session cookies. They are set by your domain.

There are two cookies:
1. _icl_current_language
3. _icl_current_admin_language

Both contain just a 2 char language code

The second is only set in the admin The first is set on the front-end so it can deliver the correct language to your visitors. If disabled then your visitors will not be able to see the content in the language they have selected.

Hope this answers your question.
