       We use Google Analytics in conjunction with Google Tag Manager.
Necessary cookies for these analytics are only used if you consent to them on

     Google Analytics which is a web analytics service. It tracks and reports website traffic such as session duration, pages per session, bounce rate etc. of individuals using the site, along with the information on the source of the traffic. It is integrated with Google Ads with which users can create and review online campaigns by tracking landing page quality and conversions (goals). Goals might include sales, lead generation, viewing a specific page, or downloading a particular file. 

Google Analytics is implemented with Google Analytics Tracking Code, which is a snippet of JavaScript code that the website owner adds to every page of the website. The tracking code runs in the client browser when the client browses the page (if JavaScript is enabled in the browser) and collects visitor data and sends it to a Google data collection server as part of a request for a web beacon.

The tracking code loads a larger JavaScript file from the Google web server and then sets variables with the user’s account number. The larger file (currently known as ga.js) was typically 40 kB as of May 2018.

The file does not usually have to be loaded, however, due to browser caching. Assuming caching is enabled in the browser, it downloads ga.js only once at the start of the visit. Furthermore, as all websites that implement Google Analytics with the ga.js code use the same master file from Google, a browser that has previously visited any other website running Google Analytics will already have the file cached on their machine.

In addition to transmitting information to a Google server, the tracking code sets a first party cookie (If cookies are enabled in the browser) on each visitor’s computer. This cookie stores anonymous information called the ClientId. 

Google Analytics can be blocked by browsers, browser extensions, firewalls and other means.
