Cookies and how we use them

Our Cookie usage policy

Some cookies are strictly necessary in order to enable you to move around the website and use its features. Without these cookies, we will not be able to determine the number of unique users of the site or provide certain features, such as automatic sign in to the SyncSquirrel services.

Examples of strictly necessary cookies set by SyncSquirrel

Cookie name Purpose
remembercode Unique identifiers set for each unique browser to allow log analysis to determine the number of unique users for various parts of our site.
identity The identity cookie is used to allow you to sign in to our website. If you ticked 'Remember Me' while logging on this cookie will remain on your computer for up to 30 days or until you click 'logout'. Until that time, you'll remain signed in to our website. If you didn't tick 'Remember Me', this cookie will be removed when you close your browser session.
syncsquirrel_com_session This cookie is used by us to identify you as a user between page loads. This allows the website to remember certain settings, like which part of the website you were using before you were asked to sign in or register. This cookie is destroyed each time you close your browser.

SyncSquirrel also uses Google Analytics to track site usage to enable us to source new music and optimise our site. This will make it easier for you to find the best possible music to license.

Cookie name Purpose
__utma This cookie is typically written to the browser upon the first visit to your site from that web browser. If the cookie has been deleted by the browser operator, and the browser subsequently visits your site, a new __utma cookie is written with a different unique ID. This cookie is used to determine unique visitors to your site and it is updated with each page view. Additionally, this cookie is provided with a unique ID that Google Analytics uses to ensure both the validity and accessibility of the cookie as an extra security measure.
__utmb This cookie is used to establish and continue a user session with your site. When a user views a page on your site, the Google Analytics code attempts to update this cookie. If it does not find the cookie, a new one is written and a new session is established. Each time a user visits a different page on your site, this cookie is updated to expire in 30 minutes, thus continuing a single session for as long as user activity continues within 30-minute intervals. This cookie expires when a user pauses on a page on your site for longer than 30 minutes.
__utmc Historically, this cookie operated in conjunction with the __utmb cookie to determine whether or not to establish a new session for the user. For backwards compatibility purposes with sites still using the urchin.js tracking code, this cookie will continue to be written and will expire when the user exits the browser.
__utmz This cookie stores the type of referral used by the visitor to reach your site, whether via a direct method, a referring link, a website search, or a campaign such as an ad or an email link. It is used to calculate search engine traffic, ad campaigns and page navigation within your own site. The cookie is updated with each page view to your site.
__utmv This cookie is not normally present in a default configuration of the tracking code. The __utmv cookie passes the information provided via the _setVar() method, which you use to create a custom user segment.
__utmx This cookie is used by Website Optimizer and only set when the Website Optimizer tracking code is installed and correctly configured for your pages. When the optimizer script executes, this cookie stores the variation this visitor is assigned to for each experiment, so the visitor has a consistent experience on your site.
