What Cookies does our site use?

Cookie type      

Google Analytics & Statistics             

Google Analytics is a simple, easy-to-use tool that helps website owners measure how users interact with website content. As a user navigates between web pages, Google Analytics provides website owners JavaScript tags (libraries) to record information about the page a user has seen, for example the URL of the page. The Google Analytics JavaScript libraries use HTTP Cookies to “remember” what a user has done on previous pages/interactions with the website. For statistical purposes only, we track how many unique visitors we receive and how often they visit our website. We collect anonymous data which tells us which of our pages are most frequently visited, by which type of user and from which country. This allows us to see which content is most popular. In order to do this, we use a web analytics tool called Google Analytics. The following cookies will be set every time you visit our site:

  • _utma (set to expire every two years)
  • _utmb (set to expire every thirty minutes)
  • _utmc (will expire when you close your browser)
  • _utmz (set to expire every two years)
