In order for us to monitor website traffic and visitor numbers and to improve the services that we offer you this website makes use of the Google Analytics tool to track and monitor visitors to the website anonymously reporting trends without identifying individual users.
Google Analytics uses first-party cookies to track visitor interactions. These cookies are used to store information, such as what time the current visit occurred, whether the visitor has been to the site before, and what site referred the visitor to the web page.
Google Analytics also used your computer’s IP address to identify the country and city that the computer is connected to the internet in by using a technique called IP Geolocation. This allows us to get a sense of where our visitors are coming from without personally identifying you. We also do not have access to your IP address so all this information is anonymous.
By using Google Analytics we have agreed not to collect any personally identifiable information such as your email address or telephone number from Google Analytics and will not link any personal information with Google Analytics data.
