Like millions of other website owners, we use Google Analytics on HelpAnimals.co.uk
Google Analytics is a piece of software that grabs data about our visitors (you). It’s something like an advanced server log.
What does Google Analytics record?
What website you came from to get here.
How long you stay for.
What kind of computer/device you are using.
And quite a bit more.
What do we do with your data?
The tracking information allows us to better understand the kind of people who come to our site and what content they’re reading. This allows us to make better decisions about site design & the good we hope to achieve through One Voice For Animals.
All of our activity falls within the bounds of the Google Analytics Terms of Service.
