3. Measuring website usage (Google Analytics)

We use Google Analytics to collect information about how people use this website. Google Analytics stores information about what pages you visit, how long you are on the website, how you got here and what you click on. We do not collect or store your personal information (e.g. your name or address) so this information cannot be used to identify who you are. Google provides further information here.
