How we use cookies
A cookie is a small file which asks permission to be placed on your computer’s hard drive. Once you agree, the file is added and the cookie helps analyse web traffic or lets you know when you visit a particular site. Cookies allow web applications to respond to you as an individual. The web application can tailor its operations to your needs, likes and dislikes by gathering and remembering information about your preferences. Overall, cookies help us provide you with a better web site, by enabling us to monitor which pages you find useful and which you do not. A cookie in no way gives us access to your computer or any information about you, other than the data you choose to share with us.

What cookies we use and why
Google Analytics: We use 4 types of Google Analytics cookies on the site. They track visitor information for each visit and for returning visits. The detailed description of each cookie is:
_utma: This cookie is typically written to your browser upon the first visit to our site from your web browser. If the cookie has been deleted by yourself, and you subsequently visit our site, a new _utma cookie is written with a different unique ID. This cookie is used to determine unique visitors to our 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.
_utmb: This cookie is used to establish and continue a user session with our site. When you view a page on our 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 you visit a different page on our site, this cookie is updated to expire in 30 minutes, thus continuing a single session for as long as your activity continues within 30 minute intervals. This cookie expires when you pause on a page on our site for longer than 30 minutes.
_utmc: This cookie operates in conjunction with the _utmb cookie to determine whether or not to establish a new session for you. In particular, this cookie is not provided with an expiration date, so it expires when you exit your browser. Should you visit our site, exit your browser and then return to our website within 30 minutes, the absence of the _utmc cookie indicates that a new session needs to be established, despite the fact that the _utmb cookie has not yet expired.
_utmz: This cookie stores the type of referral used by yourself to reach our 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 our own site. The cookie is updated with each page view to our site.

WordPress: PHPSESSID
This is a simple token used to identify your unique session on the web site. Typically used to maintain the integrity of your session while transacting information with a web site. This cookie expires when you close your browser.

Most web browsers allow some control of most cookies through the browser settings. To find out more about cookies, including how to see what cookies have been set and how to manage and delete them, visit www.allaboutcookies.org.
