extra cookies?

Hi Ray

The url is

You will notice that google translate is on the page,however the only cookies that this widget produces on other pages on my site are???


I think the purpose of the googtrans cookie is?
Sets language preferences for the session selected by google translate widget Expires at the end of the session.As the cookie is set in my domain I think that makes it a non essential 1st party cookie??? - I assume the translate widget sets it???

I think the purpose of the Pref cookie is:
Stores language preferences for the Google Translate widget. Expires in two years???This cookie is set in the google domainnso I think this is a non essentail third party cookie???

Thus I am puzzlled as to why (when clicking the submit button succesfully sends an email)
That google chrome reports the following cookies set from my domain???

I think these cookies are google anylitics cookies,one of them is session cookie (_utmc )and the others more persistant according to my research.

I tested all this by using google chrome developer tools to delete the above cookies and then tried sending an email from the site and all 4 of the above cookies reappeared with the domain indicated as my domain.

As far as I am aware I dont have the google analytics code in any page(I previously deleted it) but as you can see google translate is in all pages...
I dont understand whats going on here.....what is so special about sending an email from the contact page that causes the cookies to be set???

I am sure I must have missed something obvious???
