These cookies are set by Elementor
As far as we know, Elementor does not set HTTP cookies. Instead, Elementor works with LocalStorage and Session Storage. However, these are legally treated as (HTTP) cookies.

No HTTP cookie is set. Rather, it is an entry in the local storage and in the session storage of the browser. The collected data will most likely only be stored on the visitor’s local browser in December 2021 and will not be sent to Elementor, the website operator’s server or any third party.

Is Elementor GDPR compliant?
Elementor stores data in local memory.In our opinion, the elementor “cookies” are classified as essential according to the current state of knowledge. In this case, local storage and session storage are responsible for ensuring that pop-ups, sitebars, etc. are not displayed again so that the visitor can use the website undisturbed. Whether these “cookies” are actually considered necessary is disputed.


Duty to provide information
According to ePrivacy Directive 2002/58/EC, access to browser memory is only permitted if the visitor has consented ( GDPR Article 6 (1) lit. a) or if the access is absolutely necessary in order to provide or operate the service.

In both cases, this means that European users of Elementor should provide their website visitors with detailed information on what data is stored locally in accordance with the GDPR.

Since we consider local and session storage to be essential in this case, we don’t think you need opt-in consent from your website visitors.

Data transmission to third parties
Elementor is a locally installed plug-in. No data is transmitted to third parties. However, as already mentioned, various widgets are used. Google services such as Google Maps and Google Analytics may transfer data to third parties (Google).
