You can modify your cookie settings at any time.
Cookies consist of pieces of text, often including unique identifiers, that are sent by web servers to web browsers, and which may then be sent back to the server each time the browser requests a page from the server.
Cookies can be used by web servers to identity and track users as they navigate different pages on a website and to identify users returning to a website.
Cookies may be either “persistent” cookies or “session” cookies. A persistent cookie consists of a text file sent by a web server to a web browser, which will be stored by the browser and will remain valid until its set expiry date (unless deleted by the user before the expiry date). A session cookie, on the other hand, will expire at the end of the user session, when the web browser is closed.
We use both session cookies and persistent cookies on this website.
We will send to you the following cookies:
__utma This is the main way Google Analytics tracks unique visitors. Stored in this cookie is a unique visitor ID, the date and time of their first visit, the time their current visit started and the total number of visits they have made.
The __utma cookie is a persistent cookie that expires in two years. With each new visit, the expiration date is refreshed.
__utmb This is how Google Analytics decides whether a visit has timed out and also how deep a visit has gotten. It stores the number of pageviews in the current visit and the start time of the visitor’s current visit.
The __utmb cookie is a persistent cookie and each pageview refreshes it. (Expires: 30 minutes)
The expiration time can be customized for each site (or page).
__utmc The __utmc cookie is the only session cookie used by Google Analytics. Its only purpose is to register that the visit ended if the browser gets closed. (Expires: Session cookie)
__utmz This is the traffic source cookie. It contains all of the traffic source information for the current visit, if it was different from the previous visit. If no traffic source information can be found for the current visit, the cookie is not changed. This is the way that Google Analytics attributes visit information, including conversions and transactions to a traffic source. It does not contain historical information for previous sources. This cookie is only refreshed when the traffic source changes. (Expires: 6 months)
_ga This cookie is used by Google Analytics to track website visits. (Expires: 2 years)
_gid This cookie is used by Google Analytics to to distinguish users. (Expires: 24 hours)
