How do we measure traffic on our website?
We use Google Analytics to assess the performance of our website. Google Analytics records traffic to the website – which means it will record your visit, how long you are on the website for, and which pages you visit. It records which device you use, and its location. All this information is completely anonymous. However it is possible to opt out of Google Analytics recording your visit to any website here.
