var cookie = oqhaqzwnbjgcpycneryg('wc_client');
var [source,medium,campaign,content,keyword,gclid,landing_page,msclkid] = ['','','','','','','',''];
if (cookie) {
    var cookie_parts = cookie.split('+..+');
    if (cookie_parts[0])
        source = cookie_parts[0];
    if (cookie_parts[1])
        medium = cookie_parts[1];
    if (cookie_parts[2])
        campaign = cookie_parts[2];
