Google Analytics is a web analytics service that gathers, collects, and analyzes data about the behavior of visitors to websites. Among other things, a web analysis service collects data on which website a user has come from, which pages of the website were accessed or how often and the amount of time a page was viewed. A web analysis is mainly used to optimize a website and for the cost-benefit analysis of Internet advertising.

The operator of the Google Analytics component is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.

This site uses Google Analytics to gain insight into user interaction with our website. Google Analytics uses cookies to remember a user’s behavior, to generate reports as to who visits our website and what they do once they are on it.

Google Analytics also collects Internet Protocol (IP) addresses to provide and protect the security of the service and to give website owners an idea of which country, state or city their users come from (also known as “IP geolocation”). Google Analytics provides a method to mask IPs that are collected.

You may opt-out of the use of personalized ads by visiting Ad Settings at Google. However, please note that if you do this, you may not be able to use all the features of this website to the fullest extent possible.
