Cookies set by Google Analytics

This section briefly describes how Google Analytics uses cookies to measure user-interactions on websites. This site has Google Analytics installed. Google Analytics is a simple, easy-to-use tool that helps website owners measure how users interact with website content.

 

As a user navigates between web pages, Google Analytics provides website owners JavaScript tags (libraries) to record information about the page a user has seen, for example the URL of the page. The Google Analytics JavaScript libraries use cookies to "remember" what a user has done on previous pages / interactions with the website.  The sole purpose of this tracking is to allow us to improve the experience of visitors to this website. 

 

No personal data is collected.
