Third party cookies
A default configuration and use of our third party cookies is described in the table below:
|__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. 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.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. 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.
|__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.|
|WRUID||This cookie is used to anonymously identify a visitor of the Website for the purpose of enabling the ClickTale software to track your actions on our site. This is ultimately used for us to improve our website in the future.||One year|
|WRIgnore||This cookie is created if the domain is not selected or if the account has run out of recording credits. It provides information that the specific visitor should not be recorded or tracked by the software.||~10 minutes|
|mf_session||This cookie identifies the browser session while it happens. The cookie is deleted as soon as the session ends, meaning when the user leaves the website.||Session only|
|mf_user||This cookie establishes whether the user is a returning or first time visitor. This is done simply by a yes/no toggle - no further information about the user is stored.||90 days|
|These cookies, provided by Qualaroo Inc., are used for their embedded in-page survey application so that we can gather and make best use of customer feedback and ensure that you do not see a survey you have completed again and again.||5 years|
