Support » Plugin: MailPoet - emails and newsletters in WordPress » ECJ cookie ruling / MAILPOET_SESSION cookie

  • With the recent ruling (Case Cā€‘40/17) of the European Court of Justice (ECJ) websites are now responsible for all internal and external cookies. Cookies require an opt-in / opt-out mechanism.

    Mailpoet sets a browser cookie (“MAILPOET_SESSION”). My question is, why is this cookie needed and how can I include this cookie into a cookie management, as the visitor should be given the possibility to reject the cookie (to prevent that the cookie is stored on his computer)?

    I do require this information too.

    Hi all,

    This cookie is specifically used for the invisible recaptcha option within MailPoet, but is always loaded even if that option is disabled.

    We’ve asked the developers about this to see if we can remove the cookie if that option is disabled.

    Thank you!

    Thanks a lot, @wysia šŸ™‚
    I too, am very interested in what answer you get.

    Hi there!

    We’re going to look into an alternative option instead of using the cookie for this. There is no ETA at this time. But it is something we’ll look at. šŸ™‚


    Great šŸ™‚

    Do you have an expected date for this to be completed?

    There must be a way to prevent this cookie in the meantime. Using functions.php?

    It looks like the cookie has disappeared with Versjon 3.37.1 šŸ™‚
