There is currently a bit of confusion over what the final regulations and national implementations will be, so the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) has drawn up some guidelines, however these will not be finalised until after 26th May 2011 :(. In preparation for these changes we thought we would list the cookies which might be set when a user visits the the ChEMBL interface:
|ci_session||Generated by Codeignitor web application framework and used to store session information for each user|
|chembl_sketcher||Stores user selected compound sketcher on https://www.ebi.ac.uk/chembldb/index.php/compound page|
|marvin, jme, jdraw||Stores sketched structure on https://www.ebi.ac.uk/chembldb/index.php/compound page. Cookie is used for each sketcher as different formats are used to store structure.|
|__utma, __utmb, __utmc, __utmz, __utmv, __utmx||Cookies set by Google Analytics code, more details can be found here|
Most modern browsers offer the ability to block the receipt and storage of cookies.
