How we use cookies

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 analyze 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 analyze data about web page 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. Overall, cookies help us provide you with a better website, by enabling us to monitor which pages you find useful and which you do not. A cookie in no way gives us access to your computer or any information about you, other than the data you choose to share with us.

Google Analytics cookies
Google Analytics tracking uses cookies in order to provide meaningful reports about website visitors. However, Google Analytics cookies do not collect any personal data about website visitors. Google Analytics uses cookies to define user sessions, as well as to provide a number of key features in the Google Analytics reports. Google Analytics sets or updates cookies only to collect data required for the reports. Additionally, Google Analytics uses only first-party cookies. This means that all cookies set by Google Analytics for a domain send data only to the servers for that domain. This effectively makes Google Analytics cookies the personal property of your website domain, and the data cannot be altered or retrieved by any service on another domain. There are four cookies used by Google Analytics:

__utma This cookie is typically written to the browser upon the first visit to the website from that browser. If the cookie is deleted by the browser operator, and the browser subsequently visits the website, a new __utma cookie is written with a different unique ID. This cookie is used to determine unique visitors to a website 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. Expiration: 2 years from set/update.

__utmb This cookie is used to establish and continue a user session with a website. When a user views a page on a website, 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 a website, 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 your site for longer than 30 minutes.Expiration: 30 minutes from set/update.

__utmc This cookie is no longer used by the ga.js tracking code to determine session status, and it is not used on this website. Historically, this cookie operated in conjunction with the __utmb cookie to determine whether or not to establish a new session for the user. For backwards compatibility purposes with sites still using the urchin.js tracking code, this cookie will continue to be written and will expire when the user exits the browser. Expiration: not set.

__utmz This cookie stores the type of referral used by the visitor to reach a website, whether via a direct method, a referring link, a website search, or a campaign such as an ad or an email link. It is used to calculate search engine traffic, ad campaigns and page navigation within a website. The cookie is updated with each page view to the website. Expiration: 6 months from set/update.
