Matomo Analytics

I have begun using Matomo Analytics, instead of Google Analytics, because I think it better preserves both your privacy and mine. I use analytics to record what pages are most visited, to help me provide content that is most helpful to readers. Matomo asks that I put the following statement here.


Google analytics

This website will be using Google Analytics, a web traffic analysis service provided by Google, for only a few more weeks until I am satisifed Matomo Analytics is properly set up. Google requires, as a condition of use, that a statement such as what follows is included.

Google Analytics uses cookies, which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website (including your IP address) will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States.

Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity for website operators and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage. Google may also transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on Google’s behalf. Google will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google.

You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser. This may possibly mean that you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website, but I don’t know of anything that will be affected. By using this website, you consent to the processing of data about you by Google in the manner and for the purposes set out above.
