We use this information to make improvements to our website for future visitors.
The Google Analytics platform is not able to access personal information about you, such as your name, address, passwords, financial information, or any information present on your computer or device. It is able to identify information such as the location of your device, how you have arrived at our website and how you explored our website when you arrived.
