Which cookies do Regency Chess use?

Session ID
regencychess.co.uk requires that our visitor's computer accept a session cookie. This session cookie contains simply the session identification number which identifies the visitor to the store, as separate from other visitors. The session cookie contains no personal identity information, and in itself is thus anonymous. A 3rd-party cannot use anything in the cookie to identify the visitor in any way. This session cookie expires at the end of the visitor's session in the browser, or at a predefined time, typically 24 minutes after their last mouse click, whichever is sooner.

Google Analytics
A behavioural tracking service that helps us find out what can be improved on the website and how important it is. The information collated is completely anonymous.

Share buttons (Facebook, twitter and Google+)
