Google Analytics

The names for these cookies are __utma, __utmb, __utmc and __utmz.

The Google Analytics cookies are used to collect information about how visitors use the website. This information is collected anonymously and used to report on the number of visitors to the site, where they have come from, and the pages they have visited.

The __utma cookie is used to identify unique visitors to the site.

The __utmb cookie is used to determine the length of a user's session on the site. Each time you visit a new page on the site the cookie is set to expire within thirty minutes.

The __utmc cookie works alongside the __utmb cookie to determine whether a new session should be created, or whether the same user can continue to use the same session as before (ie if a user closes their browser and returns within thirty minutes).

The __utmz cookie determines the source of a user session, whether they came from a search engine, an email campagin or an external site.

We class the Google Analytics cookies as Performance Cookies.
