- Google Analytics
We use Google Analytics to monitor usage of the CPR websites and apps. This information allows us to assess how our websites and apps are used. We collect and aggregate anonymous data about usage (e.g., number of visitors, visitors' country, number of times each page is visited) to produce performance reports.
If you reject cookies using the popup box on our apps and websites, we will disable all analytics cookies listed above. You can also turn on the Do Not Track setting in your browser. Hotjar will respect this setting, but Google Analytics (and many other companies) do not respect it automatically. We ensure our usage of analytical tools respects this setting and if you turn it on in your browser, we will not track you.
