Google Analytics

We use Google Analytics software to collect information about how you use this website. This includes IP addresses. The data is anonymised before being used for analytics processing.

Google Analytics processes anonymised information about:

  • the pages you visit on this site
  • how long you spend on each page

  • what you click on while you’re visiting the site

We do not store your personal information through Google Analytics (for example your name or address).

We will not identify you through analytics information, and we will not combine analytics information with other data sets in a way that would identify who you are.

We are using Google Analytics to gain insights and improve the functionality of our website for you, the user.

Like most websites we use cookies for a variety of purposes in order to improve your online experience. We use data for analytical purposes to help improve the site for users, but specifically we use cookies on the site for the following purposes:

Analytical Purposes: We use cookies to analyse user activity via Google Analytics in order to improve the site. For example we can use analysis to see which areas of the website get the most activity and which have the least so we know which areas need to be improved to better serve our users and their needs. We can use such analytics to gain insights about how to improve the functionality and user experience of the site.

Your preferences and User Experience: we use cookies to gather information about users such as your geographic location. This enables us to create a better user experience by ensuring the terminology and the navigation of the site is accessible to all.

If you leave a comment on our site you may opt in to saving your name, e-mail address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.


Visitors to the site

When someone visits this site we use a third party service, Google Analytics, to collect standard internet log information and details of visitor behaviour patterns. We do this to find out things such as the number of visitors to the various parts of the site. This information is only processed in a way which does not identify anyone. We do not make, and do not allow Google find out the identities of those visiting our website.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognise and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
