- About cookies
2.1 A cookie is a file containing an identifier (a string of letters and numbers) that is sent by a web server to a web browser and is stored by the browser. The identifier is then sent back to the server each time the browser requests a page from the server.
2.2 Cookies may be either “persistent” cookies or “session” cookies: a persistent cookie will be stored by a web browser and will remain valid until its set expiry date, unless deleted by the user before the expiry date; a session cookie, on the other hand, will expire at the end of the user session, when the web browser is closed.
2.3 Cookies do not typically contain any information that personally identifies a user, but personal information that we store about you may be linked to the information stored in and obtained from cookies.
2.4 Cookies can be used by web servers to identify and track users as they navigate different pages on a website and identify users returning to a website.

- A list of Cookies that this website uses:
|__utma||Google Analytics Cookie – This cookie is typically written to the browser upon the first visit to a website from that web browser. If the cookie has been deleted by the browser operator, and the browser subsequently visits a 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.||2 years from set/update.|
|__utmb||Google Analytics Cookie – This cookie is used to establish and continue a user session with a website. When a user views a page on a website 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 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 a website for longer than 30 minutes.||30 minutes from set/update|
|__utmc||Google Analytics Cookie – This cookie is no longer used by the ga.js tracking code to determine session status. 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.||Not set|
|__utmz||Google Analytics Cookie – This cookie stores the type of referral used by the visitor to reach this site, 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 your this site. The cookie is updated with each page view to this site.||6 months from set/update.|
|PHPSESSID||This ID is used by the website to identify you during your session. A lot of the time it isn’t used at all, but if you decide to do something complex during your visit that isn’t simply clicking a link to move from one page to another (such as filling out a form), the website uses this ID to identify you throughout the process to make sure it runs smoothly.||The length of the current session|
|PREF||An anonymous cookie which is set by Google.com for as part of the safe browsing software that is used by the translate and analytics.||2 years from set|
|S||An anonymous cookie which is set by Google.com for as part of the safe browsing software that is used by the translate and analytics.||2 years from set|
