LIST OF COOKIES USED ON www.impress.ie
The PHPSESSID cookies are created/sent when a user 'session' is created. When you enter the site for the first time you are assigned a PHPSESSID cookie. This cookie stores details such as:
This session cookie has a timeout that expires if there has been no activity between your computer and our website in excess of one hour. This cookie is reset if you complete an order on impress.ie.
This cookie keeps track of the number of times a visitor has been to the site pertaining to the cookie, when their first visit was, and when their last visit occurred. Google Analytics uses the information from this cookie to calculate things like Days and Visits to purchase. This cookie is what’s called a 'persistent' cookie, as in, it is not set to automatically expire unless removed by the user.
'__utmb' and ''utmc':
The B and C cookies work 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. You see, __utmc has no way of knowing when a user closes their browser or leaves a website, so it waits 30 minutes for another pageview to happen, and if it doesn’t, it expires.
__utmz keeps track of where the visitor came from, what search engine was used, what link was clicked on, what keyword was used, and where the visitor was in the world when the website was accessed. 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.
