Analytics: In order to monitor how our sites are performing, we collect data about page visits. This information is completely anonymous — we cannot determine who it came from. When we use this data, we look at numbers of visitors overall rather than individual visits.
Analytics information is used in reports and to improve our site. For example, we have used analytics data to add, remove or change features of the site based on how popular they are with users. We track, for example:
Length of visit
Where visitors came from
Technical data about devices or browsers used to access the site
Session: As you move through the site, various pieces of information need to be stored in order for the site to function properly. For example, if you perform a search, the search terms you use will be remembered so that you can change them later. If you log in, we will remember which account you logged in with.
You can choose to have your computer warn you each time a cookie is being set, or you can choose to turn off all cookies. You do this through your browser settings. Each browser is a little different, so look at your browser’s Help menu to learn the correct way to modify your cookies. If you turn cookies off, you won’t have access to many features that make your experience more efficient and some of our services will not function properly.
