Like many websites today, we utilize Google Analytics on sisymposium.com. Google Analytics is a piece of software that grabs data about visitors to our site. It allows us to improve the website utilizing information about traffic patterns, page views and site usage.
What does Google Analytics record?
- What website you came from to get here.
- How long you stay for.
- What kind of computer you’re 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 visit our site and what content they are reading. This allows us to make better decisions about design and writing. Occasionally, we will compile aggregate statistics about the number of visitors this site receives and browsers being used. No personally identifying data is included in this type of reporting.
All of this activity falls within the bounds of the Google Analytics Terms of Service.
