These 3rd party cookies are created by the AddThis social sharing site. AddThis collects some information such as which web page you came from, which type of browser you are using, and your general geographic location. If you use the AddThis tool to share content they aggregate data about what pages are shared, when, and how. They also assign your web browser a unique identifier. This ID doesn’t, and can’t, say anything about you. It’s a random series of numbers and letters used to distinguish users from each other.
