The cookie that identifies customers
To identify customers, Altocloud uses a first-party cookie named _actmu to store the visitor ID. This is a unique, randomly generated string that is stored in the browser. This cookie is sent to the Altocloud APIs to determine whether a tracked event is associated with a particular customer and to associate subsequent visits to the same site with the same customer.
