Google Analytics and Cookies

We make use of Google Analytics to track and analyze general usage metrics related to this site. Google Analytics is a web analysis service provided by Google that collects information such as how often users visit this site, what pages they visit when they do so, and what other sites they used prior to coming to this site. Google Analytics collects only the IP address assigned to you on the date you visit this site, rather than your name or other PII. We do not combine the information collected through the use of Google Analytics with PII.

Google Analytics makes use of a “cookie” to track your usage of the site as outlined in their documentation. A cookie is a piece of data stored on a site visitor's hard drive to help us improve your access to our site and identify repeat visitors to our site. Cookies can also enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance the experience on our site. Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any PII obtained via e-mail or phone contact with us initiated through use of the site.

Although Google Analytics plants a permanent cookie on your web browser to identify you as a unique user the next time you visit this site, the cookie cannot be used by anyone but Google. Google’s ability to use and share information collected by Google Analytics about your visits to this site is restricted by the Google Analytics Terms of Use and the Google Privacy Policy. You can prevent Google Analytics from recognizing you on return visits to this site by disabling cookies in your browser.
