These text files contain session data that can be useful to improve your browsing experience. All of the cookies used by TCC are safe for your computer and they only store information that is used by the browser. These cookies cannot execute code and cannot be used to access content on your computer. Many of these cookies are necessary to ensure the proper functioning of the website. They do not contain malware or viruses. Other cookies improve user experience by storing previously viewed and downloaded content or to remember preferences (like form field values).

TCC uses the following cookies:
Performance cookies – TCC uses these cookies to measure the performance of TCC’s websites through Google Analytics, such as visitor numbers, time spent on site and stores you (anonymously) as a visitor to our website. This information is used for statistical purposes and does not identify you as an individual user.
Functionality cookies – TCC uses these cookies to recognise you when you return to our website. This enables us to personalise our content for you, greet you by name and remember your preferences.
Targeting cookies – TCC uses these cookies to record your visit to TCC’s websites, the pages you have visited and the links you have followed. TCC will use this information to make TCC’s websites more relevant to your interests.
What cookies TCC uses
TCC uses Google Analytics to collect information about how visitors use our site. We use the information to compile reports and to help us improve the site. The cookies collect information in an anonymous form, including the number of visitors to the site, where visitors have come to the site from and the pages visited.
||Google Analytics: We use Google Analytics to monitor traffic levels, search queries and visits to this website.
||Google Analytics stores IP address anonymously on its servers in the US, and neither CIVIC or Google associate your IP address with any personally identifiable information.
||These cookies enable Google to determine whether you are a return visitor to the site, and to track the pages that you visit during your session.
You can choose to opt out of Google Analytics.
TCC uses Pardot to track what individual users are doing on our website (such as pages visited and documents downloaded) and compiles this information into a visitor profile. Pardot sets first-party cookies for tracking purposes, and sets third-party cookies for redundancy. Using first-party and third-party cookies together is standard in the marketing automation industry. Pardot cookies do not store personally identifying information, they store only a unique identifier.
||Visitor Cookie: The visitor cookie includes the name “visitor_id” plus the unique identifier, which is derived from the tracking code placed on your site. The value stored is the unique ID for the visitor. For example, cookie name “visitor_id12345″ stores the visitor value “123456789,” where 12345 is the account identifier and 123456789 represents the visitor ID. This cookie is set by our tracking code on visitors and prospects.
||Pardot App Session Cookie: The session cookie named “pardot” is only set if you’re logged into our app as a user (i.e. prospects will not have this cookie set).
