At www.okam.ca, we prioritize your privacy and are transparent about the type of information we collect, how we use it, and the measures we take to safeguard it.
1. The Information We Collect
The data we collect on our website stems from the use of tools such as Google Analytics 4, Google Tag Manager, and Formspree. This includes:
- Information related to your web browsing activities on our site, such as pages visited, duration, referral sources, and other user behavior metrics.

2. Cookies and Local Storage
3.1. What are Cookies?
Cookies are small text files placed on your device when you visit a website. They're used to recognize your device and store some information about your preferences or past actions.
3.2. Third-party Cookies and Local Storage
Google Analytics 4 (GA4)
GA4 uses a different set of cookies compared to its predecessor:
_ga: Used to distinguish users.
_gid: Helps store and track site sessions.
_gat: Used to limit the number of requests and data recording.
Google Tag Manager
Formspree might not set cookies directly. However, their services could employ certain cookies for spam detection, user verification, or other necessary functions.
This isn't a third-party tool but a functionality implemented on many websites. The consent status is stored in local storage (
gdpr-consent), and not in a cookie. Another local storage item used is
ally-supports-cache, which is essential for website functionality.
