How do we use cookies?

By using our website you agree that we can place the following cookies on your device:

(Type of Cookie/ Category & Description/ Purpose)

Within the site there are currently 5 first party cookies stored and 9 third party cookies that are set on the homepage.

Cookie 1: Name: The session ID (for example 101aa0bff94ad967527ec82489d7d84c) Type: Session Cookie Expires: At the end of session Description: This cookie is used by our server code to link a user to a session so that information about their visit can be stored on the server as they move from one page to the next.

Cookie 2: Name: utma Type: Google Analytics Expires: Now + 2 years 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.

Cookie 3: Name: utmb 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.

Cookie 4: Name: utmc Type: Google Analytics Expires: On Exit 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.

Cookie 5: Name: utmz Type: Google Analytics Expires: Now + 6 months Description: This cookie stores the type of referral used by the visitor to reach our site, whether via a direct method, a referring link, a website search, or a campaign such as an ad or an email link.
