Cookies That We Have Set
Unique identifier for each user session, remembers previous actions such as user entered text when navigating back a page in the same session.
When you close your browser
This cookie is integral to the site which won’t operate correctly without it.
Cookies Set By Google Analytics
These cookies collect anonymous information about how visitors use a website, for instance, which pages are visited most often or if they get error messages from web pages.
These cookies don’t collect information that identify a visitor apart from the IP address. Our Google Analytics settings will anonymise your IP address as soon as it is received by Google Analytics to prevent it being used to identify you.
Information from cookies is aggregated and therefore anonymous. It is only used to improve how our website works.
Determines unique visitors - expires after 26 months
This cookie is typically written to your browser on the first visit to our site from that web browser. If the cookie has been deleted by you and you subsequently visit our site, a new __utma cookie is written with a different unique ID. This cookie is used to determine unique visitors to our site and it is updated with each page view. Additionally, this cookie is provided with a unique ID that Google Analytics uses to ensure both the validity and accessibility of the cookie as an extra security measure.
Determines page views - expires after 30 minutes of inactivity
This cookie is used to establish and continue a user session with our site. When you view a page on our site, the Google Analytics code attempts to update this cookie. If it does not find the cookie, a new one is written and a new session is established. Each time a user visits a different page on our site, this cookie is updated to expire in 30 minutes, thus continuing a single session for as long as user activity continues within 30-minute intervals. This cookie expires when a user pauses on a page on our site for longer than 30 minutes.
Determines session status - expires when you close your browser
This cookie operates in conjunction with the __utmb cookie to determine whether or not to establish a new session for you. In particular, this cookie is not provided with an expiration date, so it expires when the user exits the browser. Should a user visit our site, exit the browser and then return to our website within 30 minutes, the absence of the __utmc cookie indicates that a new session needs to be established, despite the fact that the __utmb cookie has not yet expired
Determines the referral route used by you to reach our site - expires after 26 months
This cookie stores the referral route used by you to reach our site, whether via a direct method, a referring link, a website search, or a campaign such as an ad or an email link. It is used to calculate search engine traffic, ad campaigns and page navigation within our own site. The cookie is updated with each page view to our site.
