What personal data we collect?

Cookies and Analytics

Cookies are small files that a site or its service provider transfers to the user’s hard drive through their web browser that enables the site’s or service provider’s systems to recognize the user’s browser and capture and remember certain information.

We use Google Analytics as a tool to collect website traffic, track user’s movements on the website, and gather demographic information about our user base without collecting personal data. Google Analytics stores information about what pages the user visits, how long they are on the site, how they navigated there, and what documents they download.

This information is used to improve our site and the data is not tied to personally identifiable information (e.g. your name or address) so this information cannot be used to identify the user.

Name Purpose Expires
_ga Used to distinguish users When the browsing session ends
_gid Used to distinguish users 24 hours
_gat Used to throttle request rate. If Google Analytics is deployed via Google Tag Manager, this cookie will be named _dc_gtm_<property-id> 1 minute
