The information gathered is only used to improve how our website works.
We use Google Analytics on our website to help us analyze how our website is used. You can find out more about this popular website analytics tool here: http://www.google.com/analytics/index.html. Google Analytics uses performance cookies to track visitor interactions. For example, by using cookies Google can tell us which pages our user’s view, which are most popular, what time of day our website is visited, whether visitors have been to our website before, what website referred the visitor to our website, and other similar information. All this information is anonymized.

TYPE 4 – TARGETING OR ADVERTISING COOKIES WHICH REMEMBER YOUR BROWSING HABITS TO TRY AND DISPLAY RELEVANT ADVERTISING WHEN YOU VISIT OTHER ONLINE SITES.
These cookies track your browsing habits so that we can show you advertising which we hope is relevant to your interests. We believe it is useful to show you advertisements that are tailored to your interests. These advertising cookies use information about your web browsing activity to group you with other users who have similar interests and show you advertisements based upon those interests. For example, these cookies may remember that on our website you viewed pages relating to particular products. Based on that information, with our permission, third-party advertisers can place cookies on your browser to enable them to show you those products while you visit other sites.
These types of cookies are also used to limit the number of times you see an advertisement as well as to help measure the effectiveness of advertising campaigns.
However, you can disable all our cookies if you choose. If you do so, you may find that significant parts of our website do not work at all, or do not work correctly.
