REVIEW OF ANONYMOUS DATA FROM GOOGLE ANALYTICS
We are committed to ensuring that our website contains content that is valuable and useful to our website visitors. To assist us in this, we have implemented Google Analytics demographics and interest-reporting features on our website. These tools allow us to review anonymous data regarding the gender, age and interests of website visitors and adapt our website content to better reflect their needs. Although this information is collected through your Google Ad settings, it is not provided to us in a personally identifiable format. This means we cannot identify what information is about you, and we will not try to figure it out.
You can opt out of Google Analytics for Display Advertising and customise Google Display Network ads using the Google Ad settings or through the Google Analytics opt-out browser add-on.
We want to keep you up to date on our latest products, promotional offers and events.
