Many of our pages include a ShareThis button, which allows you to share our content via email, Twitter, Facebook etc. These cookies enable that service to work smoothly:
_stid is a random unique identifier and is used to associated users with topics of interest, based upon the content they consume and share. _stid is a random indentifier number.
_uset is used to indicate when a user has been cookied so that the task is not repeated in the next 8 hours.
_unam counts number of unique users that share content and how many page views are generated from the resulting share. _unam only personally identifies you if you have already independently signed up with ShareThis and have given your consent.
When we provide links to third party services you find useful, they may place a cookie on your device to make their service easier to use.
ShareThis also makes use of Scorecard Research tracking which set the UID and UIDR cookies.
