Web analytics is the collection, gathering, and analysis of data about the behaviour of visitors to websites. Google Analytics uses first-party cookies to gather website traffic information (how often users visit a site, what pages they visit when they do so, and what other sites they used before arriving to a site) and spreads such information to Google servers in the United States. Google Analytics does not identify individual users or associate their IP address with any other data held by Google.
We use Google Analytics to gather certain information such as your browser type or operating system, language, city and country to generate reports for system administration. We do not receive personally identifiable information from the use of Google Analytics. This information allows us to tailor our website to better meet your needs.
