We use these cookies to track visitor activities on our websites and landing pages. These cookies remember preferences when a visitor returns to our websites and maintain sessions for logged-in visitors. 
There are three kinds of cookies used:The visitor cookie is  composed of a unique visitor ID and the unique identifier for your account which is set for visitors by the Pardot tracking code. For example, cookie name “visitor_id12345″ stores the visitor value “123456789” where 12345 is the account identifier and 123456789 represents the visitor ID.
The persistent cookie named “pi_opt_in”is what Pardot uses to remain in compliance with the Do Not Track (DNT) initiative.  Do Not Track is a web browser setting that requests a web application to disable its tracking of an individual user. When you turn on the DNT setting in your browser, it means you don’t want to allow websites to track your activity. It still tracks form landing page submissions and email send opens and clicks.

A session cookie named pardot is set in your browser while you are logged in to Pardot as a user or when a visitor accesses a form, landing page, or page with Pardot tracking code. The cookie denotes an active session and isn’t used for tracking.
Pardot cookies do not store personal or financial information, only a unique identifier.
