Google Analytics

Most pages on CARLI Web sites utilize a technology known as Google Analytics. This technology places "cookies" on user computers that allow us to gather general statistics regarding how our Web sites are used. For example, if we know what browsers and screen resolution our users have, we are better able to design Web pages that suit our users. Also, if we see that few people use a particular link or page, then we can remove it from our site. The statistics we gather are aggregate. We do not retain any specific information about a particular user.

The value of creating a permanent cookie is that the cookie allows CARLI to capture aggregate information about the number of users who come to our site, the types of browsers and screen resolution they use, and other information that allows us to better serve our users. With this information we are able to create and maintain web pages that work correctly for the vast majority of users, including users with particular web accessibility needs.
