Statistics tool update

Big update to our statistics. We are now collecting every interaction with any element on cookie banner, accepting/declining cookies, closing banner, reading cookie policy, etc. Cookie statistics tool now also allows you to track what categories were actively selected by visitor. All data is presented in updated charts. Actions data is grouped and not personalized, so it cannot be considered private data, which means no user agreement needed to collect it.
