This website uses Google Analytics to help analyse how visitor use this site. Google Analytics uses “cookies”, which are small text files placed on your computer, to collect standard internet log information and visitor behaviour information in an anonymous form. No personally identifiable information is collected about you unless you explicitly submit that information via a fill-in form on this website. So if I need personal info from you – for example your email address to contact you, or to add a blog comment – I will ask for it and you will have the option to provide it or not.
The anonymous information generated by Google Analytics cookies about your use of this website (including your IP address) is transmitted to Google. This information is then processed to compile statistical reports on website activity for Advanced-Web-Metrics.com only. We use these reports to evaluate aggregate visitor usage so that we can optimise the content to better meet your needs.
We will not link, or seek to link, an IP address with the identity of a computer user. We will not associate any data gathered from this site with any personally identifiable information from any source, unless you explicitly submit that information via a fill-in form. Google will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google.
In summary, your anonymity is as safe here as it can be on the web.
