The information generated by these cookies, including your IP address, time, place, and frequency of visits to our site, is transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States.

In using Google Analytics, we employ the "anonymizeIp" extension, which abbreviates and anonymizes your IP address before transferring it from EU/EEA member states.

Google Analytics also offers a deactivation add-on for most current browsers that provides you with more control over what data Google can collect on websites you access. The add-on tells the JavaScript (ga.js) used by Google Analytics not to transmit any information about website visits to Google Analytics. However, the browser deactivation add-on offered by Google Analytics does not prevent information from being transmitted to us or to other web analysis services we may engage.

Google Analytics also uses electronic images known as web beacons (sometimes called single pixel gifs) that are used along with cookies to compile aggregated statistics to analyze how our site is used.
