Third-party cookies and Acquia Lift

First-party cookies are enabled by default on Acquia Lift, and are created using the domain of the website that the visitor is currently viewing. Third-party cookies are optional in Acquia Lift, and if enabled, are created with the acquia.com domain.

Third-party cookies are useful if you maintain multiple websites that use different domain names, and want to track users across all of your domains. However, some browsers may prevent the creation of third-party cookies or limit their life span. For example, browsers using Webkit’s Intelligent Tracking Prevention, such as Safari, will delete cookies and browsing data if a website visitor has not interacted with your website in 30 days.
