Cookies are small text files, which ask permission to be placed on your computer by websites you visit. Your web browser may allow you to erase the cookies, block all cookies or receive a warning before a cookie is stored. Please refer to your browser instructions or the website below for guidance. However, in some instances unless the cookies are accepted, parts of our website will not function, fully or at all. If you do allow cookies to be used, when you view our website, we will store some cookie files, which will enable us to measure the use of the pages and features on our website and allow you to use some of its functions. The cookie is used to store the IP address of your machine and will not contain any data personal to you. For further information visit www.allaboutcookies.org.
The following cookies are stored on your computer:
|__utma||A persistent cookie - remains on a computer, unless it expires or the cookie cache is cleared. It tracks visitors. Metrics associated with the Google __utma cookie include: first visit (unique visit), last visit (returning visit).|
These cookies work in tandem to calculate visit length. Google __utmb cookie demarks the exact arrival time, then Google __utmc registers the precise exit time of the user.
Because __utmb counts entrance visits, it is a session cookie and expires at the end of the session, e.g. when the user leaves the page. A timestamp of 30 minutes must pass before Google cookie __utmc expires. Given__utmc cannot tell if a browser or website session ends. Therefore, if no new page view is recorded in 30 minutes the cookie is expired.This is a standard 'grace period' in web analytics. Ominture and WebTrends among many others follow the same procedure.
|__utmz||Cookie __utmz monitors the HTTP Referrer and notes where a visitor arrived from, with the referrer siloed into type (Search engine (organic or cpc), direct, social and unaccounted). From the HTTP Referrer the __utmz Cookie also registers what keyword generated the visit plus geolocation data. This cookie lasts six months.|
|__utmv||Google __utmv Cookie lasts "forever". It is a persistent cookie. It is used for segmentation and data experimentation. The __utmv works hand in hand with the __utmz cookie to improve cookie targeting capabilities.|
|__atuvc||__atuvc cookie is created and read by AddThis (social sharing button) on the client side in order to make sure the user sees the updated count if they share a page and return to it before the share count cache is updated.|
|b1279||When we do not know specifically who a visitor is we give them this persistent cookie. It can later be converted to an a1406 cookie described next.|
|a1279||Uniquely identifies the visitor in our tracking software, and the last page they visited.|
|a1279exit||When this visitor left the most recent page.|
Cookies on the Americas web pages only:
|B1046||When we do not know specifically who a visitor is we give them this persistent cookie. It can later be converted to an a1406 cookie described next.|
|A1406||Uniquely identifies the visitor in our tracking software, and the last page they visited.|
|A1046exit||When this visitor left the most recent page.|
|Misc||A few temporary cookies primarily used when the visitor is accessing forms, emails, landing pages, etc. The lifetime for these is normally a few seconds|
