JSESSIONID

When writing reviews/questions/answers, you actually submit the review/question/answer on a PowerReviews server that is presented to you via an iFrame. To ensure you stay on our site throughout the process, Power Reviews set a cookie on your machine to direct you back to the same web application server during the whole write a review/question/answer process. The cookies set during this process can be turned off and then the web application server will use a different way to track users that adds information (JSESSIONID) to the URL itself. We have the server configured to prefer the cookie method and will expire at the end of the session. This cookie is called JSESSIONID.

During the above described Write a Review/Question/Answer process, power reviews also set cookies as part of our Social Measurement product. This cookie lasts for 2 years and is called pr.9s6.

In the Review Display if/when a user clicks on a Helpful vote (whether its Yes or No) we set a third party cookie (a powerreviews.com cookie) that notes the users vote so that that person cannot vote on the same review twice. We do not set a cookie when the page loads. We only set a cookie when the user clicks Yes or No in the Helpful Vote section of the Review Display and lasts for 6 months. This cookie is called PFHV_V2, JSESSIONID
