The way we at TheBabyWebsite use these codes is:
1. If you ‘log in’ to our site, it carries-over the fact that you are already logged in to other pages in our site. For example, if you logged in to post on our forum, but then wanted to enter a competition straight afterward, your original login status will be communicated to the next page as you move around the site. This is known as a ‘session’ and it has a unique id code. It only lasts for a short while and as soon as it expires our site no longer recognises you as being logged-in.
2. Tracking: We use a small piece of code to allow Google Analytics to track how many people visit our site, how long they stay on our site and which pages they visit whilst on our site. This is to allow us to see which pages are most popular and which ones need to be improved. It also allows us to see how each user gets to our site (from a search engine, from another site or directly, by typing in our web address).
3. Some of the adverts you may see on our site are ‘affiliate adverts’ which allow the retailer to see which site referred a customer to them. This allows the retailer to see that a customer was referred to them from TheBabyWebsite and then a small commission payment is made in return. These are what are classed as ‘Third Party Cookies’
