Cookies Which Improve Website and User Experience
|__utma||Persistent||This cookie keeps track of the number of times a visitor has been to the site pertaining to the cookie, the time of their first visit, and when their last visit occurred. Google Analytics uses the information from this cookie for various calculations, such as days and visits to purchase.|
|__utmb& __utmc||Persistent||The B and C cookies are brothers, working together to calculate how long a visit takes. __utmb takes a timestamp of the exact moment in time when a visitor enters a site while __utmc takes a timestamp of the exact moment in time when a visitor leaves a site. __utmb expires at the end of the session. __utmc waits 30 minutes, and then it expires. The __utmc has no way of knowing when a user closes their browser or leaves a website, so it waits 30 minutes for another page view to happen, and that does not occur, it expires.|
|__utmx& __utmxx||Persistent||This cookie is used by Website Optimizer and only sets when the Website Optimizer tracking code is installed and correctly configured for your webpages. When the optimizer script executes, this cookie stores the variation to which the visitor is assigned for each experiment which results in the visitor having a consistent experience on the website.|
|__utmz||Persistent||__utmz keeps track of where the visitor came from, what search engine was used, what links were followed, what keywords were used, and geolocation. It expires in 6 months. This cookie is how Google Analytics knows to whom and to what source / medium / keyword to assign the credit for a Goal Conversion or an Ecommerce Transaction. The __utmz cookie also allows its length to be edited with a customization to the Google Analytics Tracking code.|
