A visitor will receive a cookie with a unique ID, which is used on the server to store temporary session user data (i.e. login validity, user preferences). This cookie is mandatory for logging in to the backend, but optional for the frontend. Certain plugins can use the session cookie to store additional temporary data.

The following data can be stored by the Serendipity application on the server (temporarily, invalidated after the server-configured timeout, usually in the range of hours):
