Cookie Information

A cookie is a small text file that resides on your computer. Cookies are used to remember your settings when you revisit a website and to identify how visitors navigate the site. Cookies provide valuable information to website owners to adapt and make changes to the site in order to improve the user experience.

Further information can be found on the Direct.Gov web site on How Government websites use cookies.

The cookie settings on this website are set to allow all cookies to give you the best experience. Please see below details of the cookies that are being set and how to delete them should you choose to do so.

Name ASP.NET_SessionIdType SessionDomain .www.lincolnshire.gov.ukExpires At end of session
When you navigate to the site, the server establishes a unique session for you that lasts for the duration of your visit. For each session, ASP.NET maintains session state information where applications can store user-specific information.

ASP.NET must track a session ID for each user so that it can map the user to session state information found on the server. By default, ASP.NET uses a non-persistent cookie to store the session state. However, if a user has disabled cookies on the browser, session state information cannot be stored in a cookie.

The information stored on the server will remain in the server’s memory until the session is either explicitly removed or expired (by default a session expires after 20 minutes of inactivity).

The cookie itself contains no personal information.

This cookie is used to establish and continue a user session with the site. When a user views a page on the site, the Google Analytics code attempts to update this cookie.

This cookie expires after a pause of more than 30 minutes.

The cookie typically looks like this: X.P.Y.C
