List of cookies we use
|_ga||This is used to understand and differentiate between different users.||38 Months|
|gid||_gid has a different ID for each page set on, and a timestamp. This assists with plotting user journeys.||24 Hours|
|_gat||We use Google Tag Manager to tailor our tracking in case we have different elements that are being tested. For example, setting a tag to track how far a user is having to scroll down a long page. The _gat tag pushes the request rate through quicker.||1 Minute|
|_hjAbsoluteSessionInProgress||This cookie is used to detect the first pageview session of a user. This is a True/False flag set by the cookie.||Session|
|_hjid||This cookie is set when the customer first lands on a page with the Hotjar script. It is used to persist the Hotjar User ID, unique to that site on the browser. This ensures that behavior in subsequent visits to the same site will be attributed to the same user ID.||12 months|

|VISITOR_INFO1_LIVE||This cookie is used as a unique identifier to track viewing of videos.||6 Months|
