Returning visitors

We identify each unique visitor using cookies. All users will stay identified until they clear their cookies or browsing history. 

If the visitor clears their cookies or uses a different device or browser, Triggerbee will not be able to identify them and they will be seen as an anonymous visitor next visit will be considered a new unique visitor - unless we have an email address associated with that cookie which will lead to Triggerbee converting the visitor to a contact.
