Cookies

Greater Cambridgeshire Partnership uses various session cookies, which allow you to proceed through many pages of our site quickly and easily without having to authenticate or reprocess each new area of your visit. We also use traffic log cookies to identify which pages are being used. These help us to analyse data about web page traffic and improve our website. We only use this information for statistical analysis purposes.

What is a web cookie?

A web cookie is a small file which contains information stored on your computer by a website you visit. It acts as your identification card, and often stores your settings for the website, which can be used for authentication, identification of a user session, shopping basket content or user's preferences such as text size, language or location. When you return to the site, your browser sends back the cookie that belongs to the site. This allows the website to present you with information customised to fit your needs.

Your privacy

Cookies can store a wide range of information, including personally identifiable information such as your user name or email address. For that reason, the European Union has issued an ePrivacy Directive (2002/58/EC), which regulates the use of cookies and storing personally identifiable information.

A web cookie in no way gives us access to your computer or any information about you,  other than the data you choose to share with us. You can check which web cookies we use on this website and on our branded applications, and find out what is their purpose.

Web cookies used on our website

Below is a summary of web cookies used on Cambridgeshire County Council website, which enable us to provide you with a better browsing experience. It will be updated as and when the web services change. This does not include cookies that are used by our branded websites, which are audited separately.

List of cookies used on our website

Cookie nameExpiresInformation
__utma 2 years Used by Google Analytics. Each unique browser that visits a page on the site is provided with a unique ID via the __utma cookie. In this way, subsequent visits to the website via the same browser are recorded as belonging to the same (unique) visitor. Thus, if a person interacted with the website using different browsers, the Analytics reports would track this activity under two unique visitors. Similarly if the same browser were used by two different visitors, but with a separate computer account for each, the activity would be recorded under two unique visitor IDs. On the other hand, if the browser happens to be used by two different people sharing the same computer account, one unique visitor ID is recorded, even though two unique individuals accessed the site.
__utmb 30 min Google Analytics uses these two cookies to establish a session. If either of these two cookies is absent, further activity by the user initiates the start of a new session.
__utmc End of session
__utmz 6 month When visitors reach the site via a search engine result, a direct link, or an ad that links to the page, Google Analytics stores the type of referral information in a cookie. The parameters in the cookie value string are parsed and sent in the GIF Request (in the utmcc variable). The expiration date for the cookie is set as 6 months into the future. This cookie gets updated with each subsequent page view to the site; thus it is used to determine visitor navigation within the site.
alert 1 month When the user closes the alert box this cookie is set with a unique reference number to prevent it from displaying again in the future. If the cookies are disabled, the alert will display on every page, even if it has been closed. If the cookies are cleared, the alert will pop up again on the next visit to the website.

socitm_include_me 1 year These cookies are used to determine whether a customer has participated in our Socitm Insight survey. It prevents the popup window displaying every time the customer returns to our website during the current survey year. If the cookies are cleared, the popup window asking to participate will appear on the next visit to our site. If the cookies are disabled, the survey will never popup.
