These tools regularly require a transmission of your IP address to a third-party provider, which either processes your data on our instructions or stores your data on its own responsibility.

When the Hotjar script executes we try to determine the most generic cookie path we should use, instead of the page hostname. This is done so that cookies can be shared across subdomains (where applicable). To determine this, we try to store the _hjTLDTest cookie for different URL substring alternatives until it fails. After this check, the cookie is removed.
