Google Analytics

Google Analytics is a simple, easy-to-use tool that helps website owners measure how users interact with website content. As a user navigates between web pages, Google Analytics provides website owners JavaScript tags (libraries) to record information about the page a user has seen, for example the URL of the page. The Google Analytics JavaScript libraries use HTTP Cookies to "remember" what a user has done on previous pages / interactions with the website. Important: Google Analytics does not collect any personal information about your website users. Read the Google Analytics privacy document for more details. Google Analytics supports two JavaScript libraries (tags) for measuring website usage: analytics.js and ga.js. The following sections describe how each use cookies.

analytics.js – Cookie Usage

The analytics.js JavaScript library is party of Universal Analytics and uses a single first-party cookie containing an anonymous identifier used to distinguish users. By default, this library sets cookies on the top level domain, excluding the leading dot, and sets the cookie path to the root level (/). Note: The analytics.js library does not require setting cookies to transmit data to Google Analytics.

This library sets the following cookies:
