A cookie is a small file which asks permission to be placed on your computer’s hard drive. Once you agree, the file is added and the cookie helps analyse web traffic or lets you know when you visit a particular site. Cookies allow web applications to respond to you as an individual. The web application can tailor its operations to your needs, likes and dislikes by gathering and remembering information about your preferences.
We use traffic log cookies to identify which pages are being used. This helps us analyse data about webpage traffic and improve our website in order to tailor it to customer needs. We only use this information for statistical analysis purposes and then the data is removed from the system.
General website cookies
This website is built using standard HTML and open source PHP web technologies, as part of this we use the built in session cookie to manage your session. When you navigate to the site, the server establishes a unique session that last for the duration of your visit.
Measuring website usage – Google Analytics
Cookies Set By Google Analytics
Google Analytics sets the following cookies as described in the table below. A default configuration and use of Google Analytics sets only the first 4 cookies in the table.
Setting the Scope of Site Content
Because any cookie read/write access is restricted by a combination of the cookie name and its domain, default visitor tracking via Google Analytics is confined to the domain of the page on which the tracking code is installed. For the most common scenario where the tracking code is installed on a single domain (and no other sub-domains), the generic setup is correct. In other situations where you wish to track content across domains or sub-domains, or restrict tracking to a smaller section of a single domain, you use additional methods in the ga.js tracking code to define content scope. See Domains & Directories in the Collection API document for details. Cookie Used: All Cookies
Determining Visitor Session
The Google Analytics tracking for ga.js uses two cookies to establish a session. If either of these two cookies are absent, further activity by the user initiates the start of a new session. See the Session article in the Help Center for a detailed definition and a list of scenarios that end a session. You can customize the length of the default session time using the _setSessionCookieTimeout() method.
This description is specific to the ga.js tracking code for web pages. If you use Analytics tracking for other environments—such as Flash or mobile—you should check the documentation for those environments to learn how sessions are calculated or established. Cookie Used: __utmb & __utmc
Identifying Unique Visitors
Each unique browser that visits a page on our site is provided with a unique ID via the __utma cookie. In this way, subsequent visits to our website via the same browser are recorded as belonging to the same (unique) visitor. Thus, if a person interacted with our website using both Firefox and Internet Explorer, the Analytics reports would track this activity under two unique visitors. Similarly if the same browser were used by two different visitors, but with a separate computer account for each, the activity would be recorded under two unique visitor IDs. On the other hand, if the browser happens to be used by two different people sharing the same computer account, one unique visitor ID is recorded, even though two unique individuals accessed the site. Cookie Used: __utma
Tracking Traffic Sources & Navigation
When visitors reach our site via a search engine result, a direct link, or an ad that links to our page, Google Analytics stores the type of referral information in a cookie. The parameters in the cookie value string are parsed and sent in the GIF Request (in the utmccvariable). The expiration date for the cookie is set as 6 months into the future. This cookie gets updated with each subsequent page view to our site; thus it is used to determine visitor navigation within our site. Cookie Used: __utmz
We can define our own segments for reporting on our particular data. When we use the _setCustomVar()method in our tracking code to define custom variables, Google Analytics uses this cookie to track and report on that information. In a typical use case, we might use this method to segment our website visitors by a custom demographic that is selected on our website (income, age range, product preferences). Cookie Used: ___utmv
We can use Google Analytics with Google Website Optimizer (GWO), which is a tool that helps determine the most effective design for our site. When a website optimizer script executes on our page, a _utmx cookie is written to the browser and its value is sent to Google Analytics. See the Website Optimizer Help Center for more information. Cookie Used: ___utmx
