Measuring website usage – Google Analytics

Google Analytics uses cookies to define user sessions, as well as to provide a number of key features in the Google Analytics reports that we use. Google Analytics sets or updates cookies to collect data required for the reports. Additionally, it only uses first-party cookies. This means that all cookies set by Google Analytics for our website send data to our servers. This effectively makes Google Analytics cookies personal to our website and the data cannot be altered or retrieved by any service on another website.

Once the cookies are set/updated on the web browser, the data they contain that is required for reporting purposes is sent to the Google Analytics servers.
