Visitor Statistics Cookies

We have recently updated our website to a different host and have changed its design. We use Google Analytics to see what sort of traffic comes through our website and it helps us to understand how we could improve our site.

We use cookies to compile visitor statistics such as how many people have visited our website, what type of technology they are using (e.g. Mac or Windows which helps to identify when our site isn’t working as it should for particular technologies), how long they spend on the site, what page they look at etc. This helps us to continuously improve our website. These so called analytics programs also tell us how people reached this site (e.g. from a search engine) and whether they have been here before helping us to put more money into developing our services for you instead of marketing.

We use: Google Analytics.

The sort of information collected by Google Analytics and how we use this information is as follows:

  • Language
  • Country & City – this is identifiable by the first few digits in your IP address, much like the country code and area code present in landline telephone numbers. Location information is not available for us to trace beyond ‘city’ (but we wouldn’t need or use that information, anyway).
  • Browser and version – Some websites look better in different web browsers (e.g. IE, Chrome, Firefox etc), we can use this information to improve how our website looks in different browsers, focusing on those with the highest use.
  • Screen Resolution – this helps us to design our website so that it looks best for most users.
  • Computer operating system and ISP – Google Analytics collects this information by default, but we do not use it and have no need for it.
  • Returning or new visitor – This helps us see whether people frequent our site, or if it’s all new traffic. If you clear your cookie data and revisit a website, that website will assume you’re a new visitor.
  • Device – If you are accessing from a mobile device, Google Analytics will list what you are viewing from. As with browsers, some sites could look better on different devices. This snippet of information lets us best decide how to design a mobile version of the website in the future.

Turning Cookies Off

You can usually switch cookies off by adjusting your browser settings to stop it from accepting cookies (Learn how here). Doing so however will likely limit the functionality of ours and a large proportion of the world’s websites as cookies are a standard part of most modern websites

It may be that your 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. Learn more about managing cookies with antispyware software.
