Hi Erica,

Marketo cookie name is _mkto_trk

_A_source and _A_time obvisously go together. I have never seen them.

ids_sso is obvisouly a single Sign On cookie (that enables you to avoid having the need to login to a portal...)

firstTouchGA is probably a custom cookie that probably stores first touch info from G. Analytics.

LPSID cookies are from the Liveperson app, AFAIK. see Introduction | LivePerson APIs

None of these are relevant to Marketo and GDPR.

Marketo's tracking cookie is _mkto_trk. It's a persistent cookie that lasts for 2 years (by default) after last use.
