BIGipServerZebedee and TS01237438
These cookies are set by the hosting company’s server.
Two cookies are set by this site: they are called BIGipServerZebedee and TS01237438.
Neither of the two cookies stores personally identifiable information, and both of them (as “session cookies”) are deleted when you close your browser session.
More in detail: BIGipServerZebedee is part of the back-end architecture of the hosting service that manages the site. It belongs to the class of “load-balancing cookies”. This website is hosted on multiple servers; when you visit the site, you are assigned to one of these servers for the current session. The load-balancing cookie is required to track which server you are communicating with, in order to present a consistent user experience as you move from page to page. It routes data and page requests to the correct server and so ensures that the content of the page loads quickly and effectively.
Highly technical information on the accompanying (and also strictly necessary) TS cookie can be seen here – https://support.f5.com/csp/article/K6850; basically it enforces elements in the security policy with regard to database management in the hosting servers.
Most web browsers allow some control of most cookies through the browser settings. To find out more about cookies, including how to see what cookies have been set and how to manage and delete them, visit allaboutcookies.org
