We use Google Analytics which is a service provided by Google Inc. Cookies enabled by this service provide analysis on how our website has been used which helps us improve the user experience and track how our system functions. This enables us to improve our website and its functionality where required. When you visit our website, your device is assigned a 'User ID' which functions as your alias in Google Analytics. The purpose of this is to allow the anonymised tracking of your activities, including your IP Address, whilst using our website. This data is compiled into activity reports and other services related to website activity and internet usage, for us. Google may also transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on Google's behalf. Google will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google. Google only receives your User ID and no profile or personal data of yours and sends us a summarised version of this data. We do not attach any of your personal identifiable data to the User ID.
