(the legal bit)

You have arrived at Come Round. Good times ahead. Our mission in life is to give everyone a good time by giving them the chance to put on loads of cool parties and get-togethers. The reason for these parties (if indeed anyone needs a reason to party) is to get people talking about a new product. The owner of that product just wants you and your friends to have a good time, since they suspect (quite rightly) that you’ll all talk about it (and their product) to other friends and family and so on well after the party finishes. We’ll send hosts a nice box with loads of lovely stuff inside to help them put on a great show. We’ll then ask everyone what they thought. Job done. Now for the legal bit…

Come Round is a service provided and run by Come Round Limited. Company No: 07295031. Registered Office: 51 Clarkegrove Road, Sheffield, S10 2NH (“we”, “are” and “us”).

__utmaGoogle Analytics2 years from set/updateThis cookie is typically written to the browser upon the first visit to your site  from that web browser. If the cookie has been deleted by the browser operator, and the browser subsequently visits your site, a new __utma cookie is written with a different unique ID. This cookie is used to determine unique visitors to your site and it is updated with each page view. Additionally, this cookie is provided with a unique ID that Google Analytics uses to ensure both the validity and accessibility of the cookie as an extra security measure.
__utmbGoogle Analytics30 minutes from set/updateThis cookie is used to establish and continue a user session with your site. When a user views a page on your 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 your 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 your site for longer than 30 minutes. You can modify the default length of a user session with the _setSessionCookieTimeout() method.

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.
