This website has a hit counter (Bravenet) to enable us to see how many people have accessed our sites and whether they are first time or returning visitors. No personal information is gathered and we will only know that you have accessed our sites if you directly contact us.
We also use Google Analytics, software that counts page hits and anonymously tracks users as they move around the site, but also cannot identify who you personally are. Google Analytics does more analysis, lets us see how well our sites are performing and whether they are mobile friendly and functioning correctly. Again, we will only know that you personally have visited our sites if you contact us for more information.
Our cookie warnings also have cookies which remember that you have visited previously and avoid the cookie warning appearing every time.
