We use Google Analytics to track the behavior of website visitors. Their third-party tracking cookies are used on all of our sites and subdomains and provide us with information used to learn where our visitors are coming from (e.g., traffic sources), how visitors interact with our site (e.g., how many pages they view, how long they stay during a visit, etc.), what kind of devices are used to access our site, etc. We use this data in aggregate to analyze the effectiveness of our website and to improve user experience. We do not track user demographics (this is an opt-in feature for Google Analytics customers). Our sites are still functional for users who choose to disable this cookie. Analytics cookies used by Google are persistent cookies that expire after two years.
