_utmaPersistent2 yearsTo understand how people use our site, and to enable us to tailor the site to better serve the needs of our users, we (like many websites) use Google Analytics. Google Analytics uses a number of cookies to function correctly. The _utma cookie provides each unique browser that visits a page on our site with a unique ID. This means that any subsequent visits to our website by someone using the same browser is recorded as belonging to the same unique visitor. This provides us, through Google Analytics, with information about the number of unique visitors visiting the site over a period of time. It is anonymous, and does not communicate any information from your device. You can read more about Google Analytics cookies here.
