FALSE

The B and C cookies are brothers, working together to calculate how long a visit takes. __utmb takes a timestamp of the exact moment in time when a visitor enters a site, while __utmc takes a timestamp of the exact moment in time when a visitor leaves a site. __utmb expires at the end of the session. __utmc waits 30 minutes, and then it expires. You see, __utmc has no way of knowing when a user closes their browser or leaves a website, so it waits 30 minutes for another pageview to happen, and if it doesn’t, it expires.

TRUE

Client ID – used by Google Analytics. The _ga cookie is used to uniquely identify users. Because of this random set of numbers, users can be identified when they come back to the site.
Google doesn’t necessarily know who a user is, and for the sake of web analytics, it uses cookies to help identify and separate unique users from each other. All of the behavior that you record on your website, Pageviews, Events, Transactions, etc. – everything you send into Google Analytics includes that Client ID so that Google Analytics can piece together a user’s history on your website.
Each piece of information that you send is a Hit and has a Client ID attached.
Google Analytics then looks for hits that have the SAME Client ID, and it connects hits that occur during the same time period into Sessions.
A User, or a unique Client ID, will have anywhere from one to many sessions that are associated with a particular user.
