What is a cookie?
A cookie is a text file which a website installs on a user’s computer. Each time the user views a page on the website after a cookie has been installed, the website will recognise the user.
Cookies can be used to remember a user’s preferences, to keep track of which pages they’ve visited, or in some cases, to store personal information about them.

The information Google Analytics collects is anonymous. It includes information on how you found this site, which pages you looked at whilst you were here and for how long, what time of day your visit was, whether you have visited the site before and what area of the world you are in.
Although other sites you visit may also use Google Analytics, the information we gather is not linked to the information gathered on any other site.
How can I stop my information from being collected?
