__utmb

This cookie is used to establish and continue a user session with the site. When a user views a page on the site, the Google Analytics code attempts to update this cookie. If it does not find the cookie, a new one is written and a new session is established. Each time a user visits a different page on the site, this cookie is updated to expire in 30 minutes, thus continuing a single session for as long as user activity continues within 30- minute intervals. This cookie expires when a user pauses on a page on the site for longer than 30 minutes.

Google Analytics

__utmc

Historically, this cookie operated in conjunction with the __utmb cookie to determine whether or not to establish a new session for the user. For backwards compatibility purposes with sites still using the urchin.js tracking code, this cookie will continue to be written and will expire when the user exits the browser. However, if you are debugging your site tracking and you use the ga.js tracking code, you should not interpret the existence of this cookie in relation to a new or expired session.

Until end of session

Google Analytics

__utmv

This cookie is usually not present in the default setting of the tracking code. The __utmv cookie transmits the information received through the _setVar() method, the user resorts to in order to create a personalized segment. This flux is subsequently sent to the Analytics servers on the GIF request URL through the utmcc parameter. This cookie is only written if it has added the _setVar() method to the tracking code on your website page.
