Google Analytics

By default, the analytics.js library uses a single cookie named ga to store a unique client identifier (“Client ID”), which is a randomly generated number. Once the Client ID is generated, it is stored in the cookie and is included with each hit or request sent to Google Analytics. This Client ID is later used by Google Analytics servers to calculate visitor, session, and campaign data. The ga cookie is a first-party cookie that can only be accessed by the domain on which the JavaScript is run. For certain implementations, you might need to modify how Google Analytics sets its cookie. For more information about how analytics.js uses cookies, read Security and privacy in Universal Analytics. For more information about cookies in general, read this HTTP Cookies article. Analytics cookies can be managed via the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.
