 Cookies

This site uses cookies as part of its content management system and as part of gathering data about how many people visit the site and where they go. Neither type of cookies collects personal information, nor do they send that information to any third party.

The CMS uses cookies primarily to establish the identity of logged-in users. It is impossible to log in without the use of cookies. This cookie is created in the following circumstances

  • When the user visits the user/login page, regardless of whether he/she logs in or not
  • When the user visits the user/registration page, regardless of whether he/she registers a user account or not
  • When the user visits a page that he/she does not have access to, such as Essential eLearning (that is, the user sees the 'Access denied' error message and username and password input boxes.) Again, the cookie is set regardless of whether the user logs in or not

Google Analytics uses four cookies to provide information to YHGfL about how users access and use the site. This enables us to ensure that the website is developed to match what our users want. Google have developed an 'opt-out' extension for a range of browsers – this can be found at https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.

The cookies used by Google Analytics are as follows:

Cookie name

Purpose

Time period

_utma

This cookie is typically written to the browser upon the first visit to our site from that web browser. If the cookie has been deleted by the browser operator, and the browser subsequently visits our site, a new __utma cookie is written with a different unique ID. This cookie is used to determine unique visitors to our site and it is updated with each page view. Additionally, this cookie is provided with a unique ID that Google Analytics uses to ensure both the validity and accessibility of the cookie as an extra security measure.

2 years

_utmb

This cookie is used to establish and continue a user session with our site. When a user views a page on our site, the Google Analytics code attempts to update this cookie. If it does not find the cookie, a new one is written and a new session is established. Each time a user visits a different page on our site, this cookie is updated to expire in 30 minutes, thus continuing a single session for as long as user activity continues within 30-minute intervals. This cookie expires when a user pauses on a page on our site for longer than 30 minutes.

30 minutes

_utmc

This cookie operates in conjunction with the __utmb cookie to determine whether or not to establish a new session for the user. In particular, this cookie is not provided with an expiration date, so it expires when the user exits the browser.

Should a user visit our site, exit the browser and then return to your website within 30 minutes, the absence of the __utmc cookie indicates that a new session needs to be established, despite the fact that the __utmb cookie has not yet expired.

On exit

_utmz

This cookie stores the type of referral used by the visitor to reach our site, whether via a direct method, a referring link, a website search, or a campaign such as an ad or an email link. It is used to calculate search engine traffic, ad campaigns and page navigation within our own site. The cookie is updated with each page view to our site.

6 months

Please note that by using the website, you give permission for these cookies to be used – although, as explained above, you can get a browser-based opt out from Google Analytics from Google.
