Google Analytics cookies

Google analytics cookies are used to collect information about how visitors use our site. Google analytics cookies collect information in an anonymous form, including the number of visitors to the site, where visitors to the site come from and the pages they visit. Please note that this information is rendered anonymous by means of suppressing part of the IP digit code. This feature was designed by Google to help site owners to comply with privacy policies, as it prevents the storage of full IP address information.
