Secondly, they are used to collect statistical data about website use and to allow this to be analysed to improve the website. Users can influence how cookies are used. Most browsers have an option for limiting or totally stopping cookies from being stored. However, please note that not storing cookies will restrict website usage and especially ease of use.

On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate use of the website by users, compile reports on site activity for the site operator, and provide other services relating to site usage and Internet usage.
