Cookies

We use cookies on this site to keep track of how our website is being used.

We don't keep any personal data on you and we don't have adverts on our site so there's no advertising cookies.

The cookies we use just allow us to see how our website is used and how people look through it. The fact you've looked at our website is recorded, but it's anonymous so we don't know it was you personally, just that someone visited.

The details of the cookies are

Description: This cookie is typically written to the browser upon the first visit to our site from that web browser. If the cookie has been deleted by the browser operator, and the browser subsequently visits 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.

Name: utmb
Classification: Performance
Type: Google Analytics
Expires: Now +30 Minutes
Description: This cookie is used to establish and continue a user session with our site. When a user views 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.

Name: utmc
Classification: Performance
Type: Google Analytics
Expires: End of session
Description: This cookie operates in conjunction with the utmb cookie to determine whether or not to establish a new session for the user. 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 your 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.
