Cookies used on this site

__utma – used by Google Analytics. Each unique browser that visits a page on the site is provided with a unique ID via the __utma cookie. In this way, subsequent visits to the website via the same browser are recorded as belonging to the same (unique) visitor. Thus, if a person interacted with the website using different browsers, the Analytics reports would track this activity under two unique visitors. Similarly if the same browser were used by two different visitors, but with a separate computer account for each, the activity would be recorded under two unique visitor IDs. On the other hand, if the browser happens to be used by two different people sharing the same computer account, one unique visitor ID is recorded, even though two unique individuals accessed the site.

__utmb, __utmc – used by Google Analytics to establish a session. If either of these two cookies is absent, further activity by the user initiates the start of a new session.

__utmz – used by Google Analytics. When visitors reach the site via a search engine result, a direct link, or an ad that links to the page, Google Analytics stores the type of referral information in the __utmz cookie. The parameters in the cookie value string are parsed and sent in the request. This cookie gets updated with each subsequent page view to the site, thus it is used to determine visitor navigation within the site.
