Google products

This website utilises Google Analytics, including its latest iteration, Google Analytics 4 (GA4), as a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. With the Anonymise IP feature enabled in Google Analytics, the IP addresses collected are partially masked to enhance user privacy.

Google Analytics uses cookies to assist in analysing how visitors interact with our site. The information gathered by these cookies, including a partially anonymised IP address, is transmitted to and stored on Google servers in the United States. Google processes this information to evaluate your use of the website, generate reports on website activities for our use, and provide other services related to website activity and internet usage. Additionally, Google may share this data with third parties if legally obligated, or if such parties process the information on Google’s behalf.

In addition to Google Analytics, we utilise other Google products to augment our website’s functionality. These include Google Optimise, which is employed for conducting tests to improve user experience, and Google Search Console, used to analyse website performance.

With the Anonymise IP feature activated, Google ensures that your IP address is not associated with any other data held by Google, further safeguarding user privacy.
