A cookie is a small file which asks permission to be placed on your computer's hard drive. Once you agree, the file is added and the cookie helps analyse web traffic or lets you know when you visit a particular site. Cookies allow web applications to respond to you as an individual. The web application can tailor its operations to your needs, likes and dislikes by gathering and remembering information about your preferences.
We use traffic log cookies to identify which pages are being used. This helps us analyse data about web page traffic and improve our website in order to tailor it to customer needs. We only use this information for statistical analysis purposes and then the data is removed from the system.
The Cookies on this site include:
-To persist the login of a user during a session at a given site.
- To automatically log a user in, if they have previously clicked 'Remember me' when logging in.
- For Google Analytics, This is a third-party cookie.

_UTMA - Google Analytics for tracking use of www.ovenmagic.me - Permanent Cookie

__utmz stores where a visitor came from (search engine, search keyword, link)
__utma stores each user's amount of visits, and the time of the first visit, the previous visit, and the current visit (presumably partly for double checking of this information).
__utmb and __utmc are used to check approximately how long you stay on a site: when a visit starts, and approximately ends.
Third party cookies from getclicky.com _jsuid: This is a random number that is generated by the Code the first time someone visits a web site with the Code
installed. Its sole purpose is to better identify new and unique visitors to a web site. The value of this cookie is sent to the
Service for every event logged. The value of this cookie will also be set as a third party cookie with the name of "cluid" if
such a cookie does not exist. The purpose of this is for web sites with multiple domains and who want to track visitor sessions
across multiple domains, which is not possible with first party cookies.
_first_pv_[site_id]: This is a session cookie that is set on the first page view of any visit. Its purpose is so that certain parts of the Code only fire on the first page view, making it faster and more efficient.
_unpoco_[site_id]: The Code sends "pings" when a visitor sits on a single page. This allows the Service to more accurately track "time on site" values. Because this feature uses a lot of extra bandwidth, it requires a paid account. For non-paid accounts, this cookie is set to tell the Code not to send these pings. This cookie expires after 24 hours but will be set again upon future visits by the same visitor.
