In general there are two types of cookies; persistent cookies and session cookies.
A persistent cookie consists of a text file sent by a web server to a web browser, which will be stored by the browser and will remain valid until its expiry date (unless deleted by the user before the expiry date).
A session cookie, on the other hand, will expire at the end of the user session, when the web browser is closed.
The list below explains the cookies we use and why:
- 'ASP.NET_SessionId': This cookie is necessary for the site to function normally and is held temporarily in memory and is automatically deleted when the web browser is closed. This cookie contains no personally identifiable information.
- _eventqueue: This cookie is used by Clicky (web analytics) and stores an array of mouse events that can't be guaranteed to be logged to their servers before the current page is unloaded. The purpose is to store these events in a queue so on the subsequent page view, these events can be processed and logged.
- _first_pageview: This cookie is used by Clicky (web analytics) and is set on the first page view of a session. It is used to make their tracking code more efficient, so certain processes are only run on a visitor's initial page view. It expires after 10 minutes.
- ApplicationGatewayAffinity: Enables web browser traffic to be kept assigned to single server during certain sections of website.
- Lead Forensics represents and warrants to Customer that its technology, including but not limited to the LF Tracker, does not capture or associate the data captured with any personally identifiable information. It does track and provide only the commercial IP address captured visiting the one of Customer's Websites, the corresponding domain and contact details of the organization registered to such IP address, and the Website visitor's operating system and browser type and version.
- _jsuid: This cookie is used by Clicky (web analytics) and is a random number that is generated by the Code the first time someone visits a web site with the Code installed. Its sole purpose is to better identify new and unique visitors to a web site. This cookie is sent to the Service for every event logged. The value of this cookie will also be set as a third party cookie with the name of "cluid", if such a cookie does not exist. The purpose of the third party cookie is for web sites with multiple domains and who want to track visitor sessions across multiple domains, which is not possible with first party cookies. These "uid" cookies are set to more or less never expire.
- no_tracky_[site_id]: This cookie is used by Clicky (web analytics). When a site stops using the Service, it is quite common for the web master to leave the code installed, which is against the Terms of service. For high traffic sites, this can use a lot of extra bandwidth and CPU resources on our servers. This cookie is set whenever data is sent in for a site that is disabled. It tells our tracking code to stop sending data to us. This cookie expires after 1 hour but will be set again upon future visits by the same visitor, until the Code is removed from the offending web site.
Google Analytics collects information such as pages you visit on this site, the browser and operating system you use and time spent viewing pages. The purpose of this information is to help us measure a users’ level of engagement and to also help improve the site for future visitors.
Many websites use Google Analytics to collect traffic data and Google itself has produced a browser plug-in, which allows you to disable the collecting of information for all the websites you visit.
