This helps us improve the service we offer you; but we are unable to personally identify you and your visit from this data, we use the data in aggregate form to make decisions about the site.

The Utmb and Utmc cookies are linked, working together to calculate how long a visit takes. Utmb takes a timestamp of the exact moment in time when a visitor enters the site, while Utmc takes one of the exact moment in time when that visitor leaves the site. Utmb expires at the end of the session. Utmc waits 30 minutes, then expires. 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, if it doesn’t, it expires.
