Which Cookies Do We Use

The following are the cookies we use on the website:

__utma
Google Analytics

This cookie is used by Google Analytics to track of the number of times a visitor has been to the site pertaining to the cookie, when their first visit was, and when their last visit occurred. Google Analytics uses the information from this cookie to calculate things like new sessions/visits

__utmb (and __utmc)
Google Analytics

These cookies work together to calculate how long a visit takes. __utmb takes a timestamp of the exact moment in time when a visitor enters a site, while __utmc takes a timestamp of the exact moment in time when a visitor leaves a site. __utmb expires at the end of the session. __utmc waits 30 minutes, and then it expires. __utmc has no way of knowing when a user closes their browser or leaves a website, so it waits 30 minutes for another pageview to happen, and if it doesn’t, it expires.

__utmz
Google Analytics

This cookie keeps track of where the visitor came from, what search engine you used, what link was clicked on, what keyword was used, and where they were in the world when you accessed a website. It expires in 15,768,000 seconds – or, in 6 months. This is how Google Analytics knows to whom and to what source / medium / keyword to assign the credit for a goal conversion or an e-commerce transaction.

 __utmt
