Cookies and Google Analytics

CSK&D uses “cookies” to analyze user activity in order to improve our websites and for marketing. Cookies are small packets of data that are stored on your computer’s browser. Cookies are created when you use your browser to visit a website that uses cookies to understand how a website is being used. Cookies help you resume where you left off or remember your preferences. Cookies are also commonly used to gain insight about how to improve the functionality and experience of the website, and to understand, generally, who is visiting a website. The cookies we use cannot be used to reveal identity or personally identifying information. Cookies are not used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer.

You can disable cookies using your browser. Doing so, however, may result in many websites (including this one) not functioning properly.

CSK&D also uses Google Analytics, a tool that measures and analyzes website traffic. For more information on how Google collects and processes data, please visit By following this link, you will also learn how you can control the information sent to Google, including by installing an opt-out browser add-on. This add-on instructs the Google Analytics JavaScript (fa.js, analytics.js, and dc.js) running on websites to prohibit sending information to Google Analytics.

For more details on installing and uninstalling the add-on, please see the relevant help resources for your specific browser.

Updates to your browser or operating system may affect the functionality of the opt-out add-on. Check directly with the manufacturer of your browser to determine whether add-ons will function properly on the browser version that you are using. Please note that the Google Analytics opt-out browser add-on does not prevent data from being sent to the website itself or in other ways to web analytics services.
