WHAT IS A COOKIE?
WHICH COOKIES DO LITTLE BIG SPORTS USE?
This is a list of the cookies that may be stored on your browser when visiting our website:
The Frontend Cookie
This cookie stores all the information about your current and previous visits, whether you are logged in or browsing the site as a guest, and also the contents of your shopping cart. This ensures if you add items to your basket then leave the store, they will still be there when you return.
The Utma Cookie
This cookie is what’s called a 'persistent' cookie, as in, it never expires. This cookie keeps track of the number of times a visitor has been to the site, when their first visit was and when their last visit occurred. Google Analytics uses the information from this cookie to calculate things like dates and visit-to-purchase percentages.
The Utmb and Utmc Cookies
The Utmb and Utmc cookies work together to calculate how long a visit takes. Utmb takes a timestamp of the exact moment in time when a visitor enters the site, while Utmc takes one of the exact moment in time when that visitor leaves the site. Utmb expires at the end of the session. Utmc waits 30 minutes, then expires. Utmc has no way of knowing when a user closes their browser or leaves a website, so it waits 30 minutes for another pageview to happen, if it doesn’t, it expires and disappears.
The Utmz Cookie
The Utmz keeps track of where you came from, which search engine you used, which link you clicked on, which keywords you used and where in the world you were when you accessed our website. This cookie is how Google Analytics knows to whom and to what webpage / banner / keyword etc to give the credit to for a 'conversion' or an e-commerce transaction.
Third Party Cookies
Certain elements of our site use third party cookies to retrieve information about who you are (e.g. our Facebook widget – which only works if you are logged-in to Facebook on the browser) or about elements of your transaction (e.g. the Sagepay payment page – which ensures your payments are made simply and easily).
