- end of session

 
The NREUM cookie stores navigation start time as well as hash codes of the document location and referring page URLs. Navigation start time is required to measure end user response time. The cookie is written when the current page unloads (i.e. as the next navigation begins). The document location and referrer are used to validate that the start time refers to the page that was previously being viewed or refreshed (to avoid using an invalid start time from a different navigation).

The use by CDW of Google Analytics cookies

We collect standard internet log information and details of visitor behaviour patterns by using Google Analytics cookies. We do this to find out things such as the number of visitors to the various parts of the site. This information does not identify visitors or collect any personal details. We do not make any attempt to find out the identities of those visiting our websites. We will not associate any data gathered from this site with any personal information from any source. We will make it clear when we collect personal information and will explain what we intend to use it for.

For more information about Google Analytics cookies

  • Google Analytics browser Opt-out
    To provide website visitors with more choice on how their data is collected by Google Analytics, Google have developed the Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on. The add-on communicates with the Google Analytics JavaScript (ga.js) to indicate that information about the website visit should not be sent to Google Analytics. The Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on does not prevent information from being sent to the website itself or to other web analytics services.
