Google Analytics Use of Cookies

The Website uses a tool called “Google Analytics” to improve the use of the Website. Google Analytics does not collect users’ names or personally identifiable information (information that could be used to personally identify or contact you); it collects only the IP address from which the user accessed the Website. Google analyzes the activity from that address to record the user’s time of the visit to the Website, time spent on its pages, the website where the user was referred from, and the user’s type of browser and operating system. To collect that information, Google places a cookie on the user’s computer. The cookies cannot be used by any organization other than Google.

Google’s ability to use and share information collected by Google Analytics about your visits to this Website is restricted by the Google Analytics Terms of Use and the Google Privacy Policy.
