Anonymous Visitor Statistics Cookies
- Google Anaytics – this gathers anonymous data about visitors using this site and then provides us with visitor statistics, details of page views, and so on. You can think of it as being a bit like CCTV but one that automatically blurs your face so we can see what people have done, but not who has done it. If you are anti-Google you can opt-out of being tracked by Google Analytics at http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout (although we’d prefer you didn’t, as this data is seriously helpful to us in improving our website).
- Wassup – this is a similar product to Google Analytics, but it also records your IP address and details of which pages you have visited and when. It may be that your IP address is non-identifiable, such as one allocated by BT, but it may be that your IP address identifies you or your company.
Turning off cookies
You can usually switch off cookies by adjusting your browser settings to stop it from accepting cookies (Learn how here). Doing so however will likely limit the functionality of our’s and a large proportion of the world’s websites as cookies are a standard part of most modern websites
It may be that you concerns around cookies relate to so called “spyware”. Rather than switching off cookies in your browser you may find that anti-spyware software achieves the same objective by automatically deleting cookies considered to be invasive.
