The New Relic cookies assign an identification number, called a "sessionID", to your visit to our Site. Information collected about your visit issent to New Relic and tied to the session ID. Each visit generates a newsession ID, and session IDs between different visits are not linked to identifyyou. New Relic deletes the session ID at the end of your visit.

The cookies provided by each third-party serviceprovider send the information they collect to that third-party serviceprovider. For example, the cookies provided by Google Analytics sendinformation about your Site interactions to Google Analytics.
