We understand you need to reach the most relevant information quickly and easily. So, our main aim of using cookies is to provide you with the most optimised 'user experience' possible.

The tables below explains the cookies we use and why:

Name Purpose Expires
PHPSESSID PHP Session ID. This is a unique identifier that is automatically created when a Session starts for a given visitor. This cookie is deleted when browser is closed.

 

Google Analytics cookies

Name Description Expiration
__utma This cookie is typically written to the browser upon the first visit to your site from that web browser. If the cookie has been deleted by the browser operator, and the browser subsequently visits your site, a new __utma cookie is written with a different unique ID. In most cases, this cookie is used to determine unique visitors to your 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. 2 years from set/update.
__utmb This cookie is used to establish and continue a user session with your site. When a user views a page on your 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 your 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 your site for longer than 30 minutes. You can modify the default length of a user session with the _setSessionCookieTimeout() method. 30 minutes from set/update.
__utmc This cookie is no longer used by the ga.jstracking 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. However, if you are debugging your site tracking and you use the ga.js tracking code, you should not interpret the existence of this cookie in relation to a new or expired session.

Not set.
__utmz This cookie stores the type of referral used by the visitor to reach your 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 own site. The cookie is updated with each page view to your site. 6 months from set/update.

 

After reviewing the cookies we use and the benefit they provide our visitors and members, we currently operate an 'implied consent' policy. This means that we assume you agree with the usage of our cookies.

The Help menu on the menu bar of most browsers or online help files will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie and how to disable cookies altogether.

Providing you with this information is part of our initiative to fulfil recent legislation. We want to be sure that we are clear and honest about your privacy when using our website. We are reviewing our policy again in December 2012 to safeguard your experience and privacy whilst visiting any of our websites.
