Use of cookies

The Sites use cookies to distinguish you from other users of the Sites. This helps us to provide you with a good experience when you browse the Sites and also allows us to improve the Sites and your experience when on the Sites or participating in a refer-a-friend programme.

A cookie is a small text file which is placed onto your computer when you access our Sites.

We use the following types of cookies:

Performance: They allow us to recognise and count the number of visitors and to see how visitors move around the Sites when they are using it. This helps us to improve the way the Sites work, for example, by ensuring that users are finding what they are looking for easily.

Functionality: These are used to recognise you when you return to the Sites. This enables us to personalise our content for you.

Advertising/Targeting: These cookies record your visit to the Sites, the pages you have visited and the links you have followed. We will use this information to make the Sites and the advertising displayed on it more relevant to your interests. We may also share this information with third parties for this purpose.




You can find more information about the individual cookies we use and the purposes for which we use them in the tables below:


Cookies used on mention-me.com and all Mention Me hosted pages

Cookie Purpose Cookie Type
Google Analytics This is used to collect information about how visitors use the Sites. The cookies collect information anonymously, including the number of visitors to the Sites, where visitors have come to the Sites from and the pages they have visited. We use this information to compile reports and to help us improve the Sites. Performance
_utma This is used to distinguish users and sessions. The cookie is created when the JavaScript library executes and no existing __utma cookies exists. The cookie is updated every time data is sent to Google Analytics. Performance
_utmb & _utmc

These cookies work in tandem and are used to calculate visit length. Google __utmb cookie demarks the exact arrival time, then Google __utmc registers the precise exit time of the user.

Because __utmb counts entrance visits, it is a session cookie, and expires at the end of the session, e.g. when the user leaves the page. A timestamp of 30 minutes must pass before Google cookie __utmc expires. Given __utmc cannot tell if a browser or website session ends. Therefore, if no new page view is recorded in 30 minutes the cookie is expired.
