LocalStorage objects

HTML5 LocalStorage is client-side storage introduced by HTML5 and supported by all major browsers. Data stored there is not sent automatically by the browser (unlike HTTP cookies) but is accessible to JavaScript code permanently, until deleted by the application or cleaned manually by the user. These object can be thus compared to first-party persistent cookies from privacy point of view.

  • Type: HTML5 LocalStorage cookie
  • Size: 104 bytes
  • Type: HTML5 LocalStorage cookie

SessionStorage objects

HTML5 SessionStorage is client-side storage introduced by HTML5 and supported by all major browsers. Data stored there is not sent automatically by the browser (unlike HTTP cookies) but is accessible to JavaScript code during the browser session only, so until the browser window or tab is closed. These object can be thus compared to first-party session cookies from privacy point of view.

  • Type: HTML5 SessionStorage cookie

Advanced trackers

Advanced user tracking and fingerprinting techniques are used by websites to bypass privacy protection in web browsers and increase tracking persistence.

HTTP security-related headers assessment

Security-related HTTP headers

  • Server: Apache

    Announces web server software and optionally version details.

  • X-XSS-Protection: 1; mode=block

    Controls an Cross-Site Scripting (XSS) filters built into the majority of web browsers. The filter is usually turned on by default anyway, but requirement to set the header to 1 became part of canonical set of "secure" HTTP headers. Over time, vulnerabilities in the "sanitizing" mode filter were found, so 1; mode=block became the recommended value. Some companies decided that they don't really need a browser-side XSS filter to mess with their web services which are XSS-free anyway and they became consciously disabling the XSS filter by setting the header to 0.

  • Strict-Transport-Security: max-age=63072000; includeSubDomains; preload

    HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS) is an opt-in security enhancement that is specified by a web application through the use of a special response header.

  • Content-Security-Policy: default-src 'self' https://sb.scorecardresearch.com 'unsafe-inline' 'unsafe-eval' data: https: blob: wss:;

    Content Security Policy is used by a web server to declare a list of trusted content types (images, scripts, media etc) and origins from which they can be safely loaded as intended by the website authors. The Content-Security-Policy-Report-Only header instruct the browser to enable CSP in enforcement mode.

  • X-Content-Type-Options: nosniff

    A non-standard but widely accepted header introduced originally by Microsoft to disable "content sniffing" or heuristic content type discovery in absence or mismatch of a proper HTTP Content-Type declaration, which led to a number of web attacks. In general, presence of the header with its only defined value of nosniff is considered as part of a properly secured HTTP response.

Sub-resources

Most web pages load a number of sub-resources such as images, style sheets (CSS), JavaScript files, web fonts, audio or video files and other web pages in frames. Each of these sub-resources may be loaded from the same server (first-party resource) or servers belonging to other parties (third-party resources). In the latter case, the third-party will see a request coming from your browser with the information on the originating page and it can set its own cookies, both of which are frequently used for user tracking. Note that the cookies set by these sub-resources are already recorded in our cookie statistics for this page.
