Couple of newbie questions re cookies if you don't mind?

> I've done some very scary stuff with cookies for a former employer.
> I logged:
> 	1. What pages you visited, in what order
> 	2. Where your mouse travelled on certain pages
> 	3. a bunch of stuff that goes along those lines

>From my understanding of cookies, you could only log the pages and mouse
movements in your domain right?  There isn't a way to make the javascript
(which tracks the movement or pages and then writes the cookie) to persist
beyond your domain, is there?  Or, does it remain until the client cache is
