Google Analytics cookies

We use Google Analytics cookies to collect information about how you use our services. This helps us meet your needs and improve our website.

All the information we collect is anonymous.

If you have enabled personalisation on your Google account, Google will be able to prepare data models and reports on website habits, which show for instance on which device you have clicked on an advertisement and on which device any eventual purchase took place.

We intend to use Google Signals to better understand how users engage with our sites, across different devices. It will allow us to see more accurate data on users that have ads personalisation turned on, both on how many users are on our site, and more information including cross-device behaviour, demographics and interests. When it is activated, Google Signals enables remarketing (also known as retargeting) campaigns to work across a person's multiple devices.

Users can opt-out of Google Analytics Advertising Features through their Google Ads Settings, Google Analtyics Opt-Out Browser Add-on, and the NAI’s consumer opt-out.

For more information, see Google Privacy Controls.
