Google Analytics uses "cookies", which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site. Cookies usually contain the name of the website which they come from, their duration and unique number. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website (including your IP address) will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity for website operators and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage, such as customization of website’s content to user’s preferences or website’s usage optimization.

In addition we are using live chat software from SnapEngage. Their javascript also sets a couple of cookies on the users computer. The only personal information about the visitor snapengage is storing in a cookie is the email address they provided. This information is scrambled (not readable in plain text)
