- My Account cookies
Purpose: This cookie is used by sites using the .NET technology platform from Microsoft. It is commonly used to identify a logged-in user to enable access to secure areas of a site.
Purpose: This cookie is for security reasons and prevents CSRF; Cross-Site Request Forgery is a type of attack that occurs when a malicious Web site, email, blog, instant message, or program causes a user's Web browser to perform an unwanted action on a trusted site for which the user is currently authenticated. Even if a user has an __RequestVerificationToken cookie, an attacker can’t find out its value, so they can’t forge a valid form post with the same value in Request.Form. But legitimate users aren’t inconvenienced at all; the mechanism is totally silent.
Purpose: In order for Google Analytics to determine that two distinct hits belong to the same user, a unique identifier, associated with that particular user, must be sent with each hit. The analytics.js library accomplishes this via the client ID field, a unique, randomly generated string that gets stored in the browsers cookies, so subsequent visits to the same site can be associated with the same user. By default, analytics.js uses a single, first-party cookie named _ga to store the client ID, but the cookie's name, domain, and expiration time can all be customized. Using cookies allows analytics.js to identify unique users across browsing sessions, but it cannot identify unique users across different browsers or devices. If your site has its own authentication system, you can use the User ID feature, in addition to the client ID, to more accurately identify a user across all the devices they use to access your site.
Purpose: This cookies is used to allow users to access and update the various CRM entities on the My Profile, Payments & Statements, Request and Repair and Track a Repair pages.
