Tracking
Web-analytics is one of the main subjects of this site. So naturally we use a system to track visits.

We use the obvious one, Google Analytics, to record anonymous data about the way people use this site. Google forbids us to track any personaly identifiable behaviour.

If you want the full detail on that, here are the Google Analytics UK-English Terms of Service under which we operate.

But you’re probably more interested in this key section:

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses “cookies”, which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website (including your IP address) will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States . Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity for website operators and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage. Google may also transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on Google’s behalf. Google will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google. You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser, however please note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website. By using this website, you consent to the processing of data about you by Google in the manner and for the purposes set out above.

By the way, if you would like to keep an eye on who is using which web-analytics system to track you, then you should download a copy of WASP, a Firefox browser extension which identifies web-analytics systems and flags them up at the bottom of your browser window.

Survey Comments
We use surveys to help us understand the needs of our visitors and to gain insighet into the way they use the site in particular and the internet in general. If you complete one of our surveys we will not publish your personal information, but we occasionally quote interesting comments in articles on the site.
