  • What browser and operating system are being used.
  • Screen size and whether Flash or Java is installed.

Cookies set by Google Analytics (ga.js javascript library)

The ga.js JavaScript library uses cookies to:

  • Determine which domain to measure
  • Distinguish unique users
  • Throttle the request rate
  • Remember the number and time of previous visits
  • Remember traffic source information
  • Determine the start and end of a session (the time during which you interact with the website)
  • Remember the value of visitor-level custom variables

 

This library sets the following cookies:
