I may need some additional understanding about cookies, in general.
My understanding is that cookies are small bits of code that exist on a website and can get placed on a user's instance. Cookies don't get placed ON our website, they get placed on instances FROM our website.
Yet, in a recent CookieBot report, we were alerted to hundreds of cookies placed on our website from external sources. On the page where most of these originated, we cannot find them. The report also states that some of the cookies originate from an iframe, but the pages that are mentioned don't have any iframes at all.
Can someone explain this to me, and advise how we can remove any and all cookies that we ourselves have not put our site as needed?
