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

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.
