The cookies used on this site are third party services to handle the following features:
Fraud Prevention and Detection. Cookies and similar technologies that we deploy through websites and the Services help us learn things about computers and web browsers used to access the Services. This information helps us monitor for and detect potentially harmful or illegal use of our Services.
To Analyze and Improve Our Services. Cookies help us understand how to make our website and Services work better for You. Cookies tell us how people reach our website and our Users’ websites and they give us insights into improvements or enhancements we need to make to our website and Services.
For Better Advertising. Cookies can help us provide more effective advertising on our website. For example, we might use a cookie to help prevent You from seeing the same advertisement multiple times or to measure how many times an advertisement is viewed or clicked on.
The __cfduid cookie is used to identify individual clients behind a shared IP address and apply security settings on a per-client basis. For example, if the visitor is in a coffee shop where there are a bunch of infected machines, but the specific visitor's machine is trusted (e.g. because they've completed a challenge within your Challenge Passage period), the cookie allows us to identify that client and not challenge them again. It does not correspond to any user ID in your web application, and does not store any personally identifiable information. Because Cloudflare uses this cookie to identify both HTTP and HTTPS requests from known clients, we do not set the "secure" flag on it. This is not a risk, however, as mentioned above the cookie does not contain sensitive data. This cookie is strictly necessary for Cloudflare's security features and cannot be turned off.
Google & Material Design
The _ga cookie name is associated with Google Universal Analytics - which is a significant update to Google's more commonly used analytics service. This cookie is used to distinguish unique users by assigning a randomly generated number as a client identifier. It is included in each page request in a site and used to calculate visitor, session and campaign data for the sites analytics reports. By default it is set to expire after 2 years, although this is customisable by website owners.
The __utmxx and __utmx cookies are associated with Google Website Optimizer, a tool designed to help site owners improve their websites. It is used to distinguish between two variations a webpage that might be shown to a visitor as part of an A/B split test. This helps site owners to determine which version of a page performs better, and therefore helps to improve the website.
