Troubleshooting Question

How to retrieve a cookie set on our one site when the user visits one of our other sites?

Trying to figure out how this could work if at all?
On our main site only, we are dropping a cookie on the users device 'CRef' - which is a uuid of that user in our CRM so later if they visit our site, we are made aware they are actively on it. That all works great.

I'm trying to figure out how to extend that to our secondary sites? So if that same user we dropped the cookie on after having visited our main site, visits one of our other sites, we can check for that same cookie, and alert us they are on our 'other site'.

We have access to our secondary sites to place a .js script link back to our main site, but I'm in the dark on how the cookie works/restrictions etc.
