Last Updated: Jul 12, 2018

This Cloudflare Cookie Policy (“Policy”) outlines the general policy, practices, and types of cookies that Cloudflare, Inc. (“Cloudflare”, “we”, “us” or “our”) may use to improve our services and your experience when visiting our Website. For the purposes of this Policy, “Website” refers to www.cloudflare.com as well as the other websites that Cloudflare operates and that link to the Cloudflare Website Terms of Use.


Cookies are small pieces of text used to store information on web browsers. They are used by many websites to store and receive identifiers and other information on devices, such as a handheld phone or computer. Our Website and Service use cookies and other similar technologies (collectively in this Policy, "cookies"), in order to provide a better service to you and to generally improve our Website and Service. For example, we may use cookies to help direct you to the appropriate part of our Website, by indicating that you are a repeat visitor. We also may use information to present you with services that are matched to your preferences and to manage and track the effectiveness of our marketing efforts.

We also may include tracking pixels, which are small graphic images, in our marketing communications to determine engagement. These cookies may be set by us or by third parties with whom we have partnered to assist in our marketing efforts.

Some portions of our Website are functional without cookies, and you may generally choose whether to accept cookies. Most web browsers are set to accept cookies by default, however, you may be able to delete cookies yourself through your browser's cookie manager. To do so, please follow the instructions provided by your web browser. Please note that disabling cookies will reset your session, disable auto-login, and may adversely affect the availability and functionality of our Website and the services we can provide to you.

We detail below the cookies used our Website. If you wish to opt-out of cookies that collect information to serve you interest-based ads, you may opt-out by clicking here (or if located in the European Union, click here).

Functional Cookies.

Functional cookies are necessary to help our Website and Service to work as intended. Some of these cookies include, but are not limited to:

  • userLoggedIn - Determines if you have logged in before and, if so, forward you to the product dashboard.

  • meerkatBannerHidden - Determines if you have dismissed a notification banner for Cloudflare features.

  • userCookiesAllowed - Determines if the user has accepted the ability to load cookies.

You may disable any of these functional cookies as described above; but if you do, various functions of the Website or Service may be unavailable to you or may not work as intended.

In addition, as part of our Service, we may place a “__cfduid” cookie on the computers of End Users (as that term is defined in our Privacy Policy). We do this in order to identify malicious visitors to our Customers’ websites, to reduce the chance of blocking legitimate users, and to provide customized services.

We use third-party cookies and similar tracking technologies to help us understand how you use our Website and Service and improve your experience.

In addition, we also may include tracking pixels, which are small graphic images, in our email messages to determine whether the messages were opened and if the links were clicked. If you do not want to receive tracking pixels in emails we send you, you will need to disable HTML images in your email client, but that may affect your ability to view images in other emails you receive.

Advertising & Targeting.

These third-party cookies are placed by third-party advertising platforms or networks to collect information about your visits to and actions on certain pages of our Website so that they can deliver ads for relevant Cloudflare products and services to you later, such as when you are on certain third-party sites.
