Cookies – Like pretty much every other website we use analytics. We do this to, well, analyse visitors to this site. It helps us understand where our web visitors come from and whether, for instance, they are visiting for the first time or are a repeat user. We don’t know who the individual user is and the data is just that, data. Broadly, it tells us that someone in a particular geographic area looked at a particular page.
In order for the analytics to work when you visit this site a cookie will be placed on your machine. A cookie is basically a small line of code that identifies whether you have visited before and ‘remembers’ you if you have. The cookie comes from Google, Bing or another service that offers webmasters analytic functionality. I haven’t a clue if Google et al use this data for their own purposes.
Analytics are great for me – I can see where most of my traffic comes from, the content being looking at and that helps me to shape what I put on my site – what works, what doesn’t and what can be improved.
So, I am technically supposed to offer you an ‘opt in’ system. Now, if I had to visit a site that made me ‘opt in’ I’d probably ‘opt out’ before getting beyond that page so here’s my take on it…….
By using this site you are making an informed judgement to continue and your continuation is consent from you for my analytics thingummybob putting a cookie on your machine for data and analytic purposes.
Did you read all the way to here? Wow, you qualify for a lolly.
