Measuring my visitors

I measure visitors to my website using Google Analytics. This records the pages you view within my site, how you arrived at my site and some basic information about your computer. I anonymize your IP address so all of that information is anonymous - I don't know who you are; just that somebody visited my site.

The information I collect from analytics helps me understand how well my website is meeting the needs of my visitors, how people arrive at my site and so on. I use this information to help me understand how people use my website and to improve their experience when using it.

I retain Google Analytics website useage data for the minimum period possible - currently 14 months.
