It is one of the four main cookies set by the Google Analytics service which enables website owners to track visitor behaviour measure of site performance. It is not used in most sites but is set to enable interoperability with the older version of Google Analytics code known as Urchin. In this older versions this was used in combination with the __utmb cookie to identify new sessions/visits for returning visitors. When used by Google Analytics this is always a Session cookie which is destroyed when the user closes their browser. Where it is seen as a Persistent cookie it is therefore likely to be a different technology setting the cookie.

These cookies are used to collect information about your browsing habits to deliver more relevant advertising based on your interests.

These include; interests, age, gender and other similar characteristics inferred from internet browsing or marketing data that an advertiser holds about you. To personalise our advertising and web experiences, unique identifiers are stored by a Cookie, to help create an ad profile. These are unique codes set on your device’s mobile operating system.

This enables the display of ads based on your browsing behaviour, which may mean the ads you see are more relevant to your interests. This can also help to limit the frequency of adverts you see across the internet if you have already seen a particular ad.
