How to classify a cookie

Steps to take to classify a cookie or third-party script

Classifying the cookies and third-party scripts used on your site is important for letting your users know how their data is being used. Clym gives you the ability to manually assign categories to your cookies and third-party scripts, and to allow you to educate your users on what the purposes of those cookies and scripts are for the functionality of your website.

If you need to classify a cookie or a third-party script, please follow the simple 3-step instructions below:

1. Log into the Clym admin

2. Select your property (domain)

Navigate to the Properties menu option and then select your domain.
