These cookies are essential in order to enable you to move around the website and use its features.
We use Google Analytics to help us understand how people arrive at our website, how many people arrive at our website and how people browse or use our website. The data stored by these cookies never shows personal identifiable information from which your details can be ascertained. Lodders have requested IP anonymization from google analytics, which anonymises the address as soon as technically feasible at the earliest possible stage of the collection network. The IP anonymization feature in Analytics sets the last octet of IPv4 user IP addresses and the last 80 bits of IPv6 addresses to zeros in memory shortly after being sent to the Analytics Collection Network. The full IP address is never written to disk, meaning Lodders does not see the IP address.
