Targeting Cookies

We do not use targeting cookies to place advertisements; however, our website, craftcms.com, includes social media features such as the Facebook and Twitter buttons and widgets such as the Share button or interactive mini-programs. These features may use a social sharing cookie called AddThis that links to your social media accounts and may enable behavior advertising.

Third Party Website Cookies

We do not have control over the placement of cookies by other websites you visit, even if our site directs you to theirs.

How to Control and Delete Cookies

Many of the cookies used on our website and through emails can be enabled or disabled by disabling the cookies through your browser. To disable cookies through your browser, follow the instructions usually located within the “Help,” “Tools” or “Edit” menus in your browser. Please note that disabling a cookie or category of cookies does not delete an existing cookie from your browser unless you delete it manually through your browser function.

Browsing Session Duration

Some cookies such as CraftSessionId are intended to expire at the end of a browsing session. A browsing session typically ends when you close the browser window, but this behavior may vary depending on which browser and your browser preferences. In Chrome, for example, the “Continue where you left off” option for the “On startup” setting will prevent session cookies from being deleted, thereby extending your sessions indefinitely.
