Web Analytics

We use Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google.

We may combine your personally-identifying information, and information about your preferences and activities, with those of all or a particular group of our users to prepare collective profiles of our users and their activities. For example, we may track the number of our users who view certain pages or use certain features or compile the volume of users visiting the site and using our services in a particular geographic region. Such information, and other information we derive from individual users’ information, allows us to refine the website and related marketing and communications.
