 Cookie Name  Purpose
 JSESSIONID

Used to store a unique random identifier for each visit to this website. No other information is written to this cookie on your computer/device. This cookie is required by the webserver software to remember certain settings such as whether you have logged into the site. This cookie is destroyed each time you close your browser and all information stored against this unique identifier is automatically deleted from the server 30 minutes after your last access of the web-site. This cookie is essential to ensure that all web-site functionality is available to you.  For normal visitors no information will be stored in the session and will only be used for administrative access to the CMS (i.e. only used for site administration).

Session Cookies

(member only area) - These are effective for the period after the member has logged in to the members only area until the member logs out of the area. They are used to enhance the website experience of the user and for certain security functions. Once the member logs out, they are no longer effective. They are not used on the public website.  These cookies are essential for the proper operation of the member only area, which will not function if cookies are disabled by the member’s browser.

Persistent Cookies

(member only area) - These are used in two scenarios:

1. “Remember Me” – This allows users to be automatically authenticated when gaining access to the member only area. This is a common feature in many websites but its use is not best practice unless access to the PC or other access device (e.g.: smart phone, laptop) is controlled by a separate password.

2. “Last Login” – This is used to maintain the user experience if a session on the member only area times out.

Google Analytics

These are used to allow PMI marketing department to track and report (anonymously, and in aggregate) on usage of each page of the public website and also the member only website. No information that can be attributed to any identifiable member of PMI is collected or used in these cookies.
