What are cookies?

Cookies are small files that are sent to your PC, mobile phone or tablet when you visit a website. They stay on your device and are sent back to the website they came from when you visit it again. Cookies collect data and send it to us while you use the site. These are written into mobile apps and web pages that you go to on your device.

The Association Website uses cookies. The site uses session cookies that cannot be disabled. These cookies are used to collect statistical information about visitors of the website and the pages they view. These cookies don’t collect information that identifies a visitor (i.e. no IP address is collected). The information these cookies collect is aggregated and used anonymously.

The site also uses Google Analytics which collects statistical information about visitors of the website and the pages they view. The _ga cookie is used to uniquely identify users by assigning them a unique number or Client ID. Because of this random set of numbers, users can be identified when they come back to the site.

Google doesn’t necessarily know who a user is, and for the sake of web analytics, it uses cookies to help identify and separate unique users from each other. All of the behaviour that is recorded on the Association Website, Pageviews, Events, Transactions, etc. includes that Client ID so that Google Analytics can piece together a user’s history on your website.

Each piece of information that is sent is a Hit, and has a Client ID attached. Google Analytics then looks for hits that have the SAME Client ID, and it connects hits that occur during the same time period into Sessions.

A User, or a unique Client ID, will have anywhere from one to many sessions that are associated with a particular user.
However nowhere is that information logged and so could not be hijacked by a third party in order to identify anyone.

By using our Website, you are agreeing to the above terms.
