What are cookies?
Cookies are small pieces of text data that are stored on your computer or mobile device by a website. Each cookie is unique to your web browser. A cookie will contain anonymous information such as a random unique value, the website’s domain name, and some digits and numbers.
What types of cookies do we use?
Functionality cookies let us operate the site in accordance with the choices you make. For example, this website will remember when you have clicked on the banner describing cookie usage so that it will not be shown to you again.
These cookies enable us and third-party services to collect aggregated data for statistical purposes on how our visitors use the website. These cookies do not contain personal information such as names and email addresses and are used to help us improve your user experience of the website.
All information these cookies collect is aggregated and therefore anonymous. If you do not allow these cookies we will not know when you have visited our site, and will not be able to monitor its performance.
We use Google Analytics to record information about the pages a user has seen; for example, the web address, time of day, device used, etc. The information that is collected is anonymized and sent to Google Analytics for aggregation and analysis.
Google Analytics mainly uses first-party cookies to report on visitor interactions on this website. Users may disable cookies or delete any individual cookie. Learn more
In addition, Google Analytics supports an optional browser add-on that – once installed and enabled – disables measurement by Google Analytics for any site a user visits. Note that this add-on only disables Google Analytics measurement.
Google Analytics also collects Internet Protocol (IP) addresses to provide and protect the security of the service, and to give website owners a sense of which country, state, or city in the world their users come from (also known as “IP geolocation”).
See this page for Google Analytics security and usage of data.
