Google Analytics Cookie Usage on our Website

This website uses Google Analytics to help analyse how users use the site. Google Analytics is a simple and easy-to-use tool that helps site masters to measure how various users interact with onsite content. As a user navigates between different web pages, Google Analytics offers webmasters JavaScript tags (or libraries) to keep a record of all information about the page a user has been on, for example the URL of a page. The Google Analytics JavaScript libraries use HTTP Cookies to “record” what a user has done on some previous pages / interactions with the site.
Important: Google Analytics does not collect any personal information about your website visitors. Read the Google Analytics privacy document for further details.
