It has a 1 year expiry from when you last visited the website.
The empowerpaw.com website uses a second cookie named csrftoken which is also strictly necessary for the website to operate correctly. This value of this cookie changes frequently and is part of our security mechanism to ensure that malicious actors cannot make requests to our website on your behalf.
If you block first party cookies, the empowerpaw.com website will no longer function correctly for you.

Realytics’ cookies can be qualified as an “audience measurement and statistics cookie”, exempt from any consent, used to measure the performance of TV campaigns in digital. As for optimization and advanced measurement solutions, it is mandatory to seek explicit consent. In this case, Realytics becomes a data provider for the advertiser’s partners, and the advertiser needs to make sure they’re RGPD compliant. In both cases, Realytics’ cookies don’t store any personal or sensitive data and anyone can choose to be excluded from the use of the Realytics’ tracker by going on Realytics’ opt-out page.
In addition to the individual setting and control options provided by the above third parties, you can also visit the Interactive Advertising Bureau's website at https://www.youronlinechoices.com/uk, which lists all ad-related cookies stored on your device – not just those related to empowerpaw.com – and provides additional details and links to control each of them.
