What are Cookies?
“Cookies” are small pieces of data that a website sends to your computer’s hard drive while you are visiting that website. This data is anonymised and these cookies cannot identify you personally.

Google Analytics helps us to improve the visitor experience by understanding factors about our website such as how many times each page is visited, how often and for how long unique users visit the website and what keywords users search for to find our website. None of this information can identify you personally. You can choose to decline Google Analytics cookies and you can also install the Google Analytics Opt-out Add-on in your browser, which prevents Google Analytics from collecting information about your website visits: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout
