Our Site (www.spamhaus.org) uses cookies to control access to pages and database records.

When you enter our Site for the first time and where we wish to issue your computer with a cookie, you will be asked to consent to such use. If you wish to reject our cookie, you can decline our request, in which case you may not be able to use the Site or some parts of it. Additionally, you can configure your browser to do so, or you can ask your internet browser to alert you when a cookie is being set up.

We use the following cookies:
  • Strictly necessary cookies. These are cookies that are required for the operation of our Site. They include, for example, cookies that enable you to sign up for our services.
  • Analytical/performance cookies. They allow us to recognise and count the number of users and to see how users move around our Site when they are using it. This helps us to improve the way our Site works, for example, by ensuring that visitors are finding what they are looking for easily.

You can find more information about the individual cookies we use and the purposes for which we use them in the table below:

These cookies are used to collect information about how visitors use our site. We use the information to compile reports and to help us improve the site. The cookies collect information in an anonymous form, including the number of visitors to the site, where visitors have come to the site from and the pages they visited.

Cloudflare _cfduid This cookie is used for Cloudflare's security features More Information
Hotjar _hjid Hotjar cookie. This cookie is set when the customer first lands on a page with the Hotjar script. It is used to persist the Hotjar User ID, unique to that site on the browser. This ensures that behavior in subsequent visits to the same site will be attributed to the same user ID. More information
Hotjar _hjRecordingLastActivity This should be found in sessionStorage (as opposed to cookies). This gets updated when a visitor recording starts and when data is sent through the WebSocket (the visitor performs an action that Hotjar records). More information
Hotjar hjTLDTest 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. More information
Hotjar _hjUserAttributesHash User Attributes sent through the Hotjar Identify API are cached for the duration of the session in order to know when an attribute has changed and needs to be updated. More information

Please note that third parties providing external services such as web traffic analysis may also use cookies, over which we have no control. These cookies are likely to be used for analytics and performance measurement.

Except for essential cookies, or where specified above, all cookies will expire after the user closes the browser.
