We may use pixel tags to collect information about your visit, including the pages you view, the links you click and other actions taken in connection with our website. We also collect certain standard information that your browser sends to every website you visit, such as your IP address, browser type and language, username, system type, whether you have enabling software to access certain website features, access times and referring website addresses.

We use Google Analytics to better understand how our customers navigate to and through our website and services, how long customers spend visiting our content items, and how often they return to visit our website.
