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 https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout (although weâ€™d prefer you didnâ€™t, as this data is seriously helpful to us in improving our website).
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 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.
