Google Analytics is used on some of our websites for legacy reasons (most don’t anymore and have transitioned to an in-house analytics system that does not share information with third-parties). We use Google Analytics to see how many visitors come to the website, the approximate location of visitors, how much time they spend on the website, and other aggregate data. To limit the exposure of your information, data sharing is disabled in Google Analytics.
