In order to serve you better, we occasionally use web services including Google Analytics to help analyze the use of our website.

We study patterns of website activity so that we can improve the visitor experiences with our Site. Google may use the collected data to contextualise and personalise the ads of its own advertising network. 

The use of this tool does not allow us or our analytics service provider to identify individuals. 

You can opt-out of having your activity on the Site available to Google Analytics by installing the Google Analytics opt-out browser add-on. The add-on prevents the Google Analytics JavaScript (ga.js, analytics.js, and dc.js) from sharing information with Google Analytics about your activity.
