Google Analytics

Google Analytics is a web analytics service offered by Google that tracks and reports website traffic. Google uses the data collected to track and monitor the use of our Service. This data is shared with other Google services. Google may use the collected data to contextualize and personalize the ads of its own advertising network. You can opt-out of having made your activity on the Service 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 visits activity.

Starting August 12, 2020, Google relies on the European Commission’s Standard Contractual Clauses (SCCs) for transfers of online advertising and measurement personal data out of the European Economic Area, the UK, or Switzerland. 

For more information on the privacy practices of Google, please visit the Google Privacy & Terms web page:

In addition, we provide a link to the Google Analytics browser add-on to facilitate people who’d like to block Google Analytics across the web through an extension of the Google Chrome browser on the bottom of every page.​
