Description (last modified by garrett-eclipse)

Hello,

Uploading a patch to update the Cookie Policy on WP.org with the following.

Remove __utma, __utmb, __utmc, __utmt, __utmz as they were for Google Analytics urchin analytics.js implementation. We're now using GTM.

Add wporg_locale for logged in users.
Add __qca Quantcast cookie.
Add _gat, _ga, _gid for new Google Analytics implementation through Google Tag Manager.
Add tk_lr, tk_or, tk_ai for logged in users as Jetpack is adding cookies.

Happy to discuss

Where are we using Quantcast?

Based on #4216 the cookie lifetime for the removed Quantcast was 5 years. Maybe you still had one in your browser?

Thanks for the patch! I've left Quantcast out of the commit per the comments above. Feel free to reopen if it still needs to be added, though it doesn't look like that :)

Thanks @SergeyBiryukov and sorry @ocean90 / @Otto42 I didn't catch your notes. Yes I was confused with Quantcast as well thinking it removed so was confused finding it on my new laptop (as of Jan2020). If it comes up again will get more information.
