Google Analytics

We employ Google Analytics GA4 as a web analytics service to track and report on traffic to our website. This service helps us analyze how users interact with our site, allowing us to improve our web presence and user experience. Google Analytics uses cookies to track user behavior but does not identify individual users or associate your IP address with any other data held by Google; with GA4, Google does not process or store IP addresses. We use reports provided by Google Analytics to enhance the functionality and user-friendliness of our website. If you wish, you may opt out of Google Analytics tracking with the Google Analytics opt-out browser add-on or by configuring your browser settings to block cookies. Using an advanced browser such as Safari or Firefox can also enable enhanced protection and/or private browsing.

We utilize Google Signals to enhance our understanding of our audience across various devices and to provide a more cohesive user experience. This feature enables us to understand cross-device behaviors and offer more personalized content. Google Signals is based on your opted-in permission provided to Google to share data on your web browsing history; Google Signals data is anonymized in reports. However, we respect your privacy choices, and you can deactivate this feature at any time through your Google account settings.
