Google Analytics uses different cookies to note down information. A built-in Google Analytics code determines when the cookies expire. Here's a look at examples of Google Analytics use of cookie.
This cookie contains all the information on the source of traffic for the current visit, the cookie doesn't change if no traffic source information is found for the current visit. This cookie doesn't contain historical information for previous sources. It's the way Google Analytics attributes visit information, such as transactions and conversions to a traffic source. Being a persistent cookie means it expires in 6 months. The only way to refresh it is to change the traffic source
Utma is the mainway through which Google Analytics tracks unique visitors. The cookie stores the date, time of the first visit, and a visitor's ID. Also, this cookie stores information on the number of visits they've made. The -utma cookie can last for up to 2 years. However, you can customize the expiration time in the tracking code.
-utmb is a type of cookie that tells Google Analytics whether a visit has timed out and also how far the visit went. It also stores information of the start time of the visitor's current visit as well as the number of page views in the currentvisit. This persistent cookie expires in less than an hour. But, each page visit refreshes it.
This is the only session cookie used by Google Analytics. The -utmc cookie registers that the visit ended once the user closed the browser.
