Google Analytics is an analytics service that provides aggregated and real-time insights into how our website is being found, navigated and used, and provides us with very useful information on how to optimise our website and make it more user-friendly. It uses (Java)scripts that place cookies on your computer and assign you a unique ID as you visit our website. This ID allows the scripts to recognise you when you return to our website, and to track your usage of our website.
