Visitor statistics

In order to understand how the website is being used and to provide support for our improvement efforts, we collect statistics about each visit through the Google Analytics statistics tool. The data includes information about the cookie ID, IP address, web browser, and which pages are visited, which is stored for 26 months.

More specifically, we use cookies to determine whether or not you are a return visitor. We save the unique number that the cookie in your web browser is allocated (cookie ID). The IP address is used to identify the geographic residence of our visitors.
