Google Analytics and Tracking

I have become increasingly concerned about the amount of tracking and personal information that is given to Google and other websites during online browsing but unfortunately I have now had to add Google Analytics to this website in order to make it work properly. I was having issues with sending emails or newsletters from this website, as the messages were being tagged as ‘unsafe’.
I have set the Google Analytics to anonymize the visits so your exact location is not shown. If you don’t feel comfortable with the use of Cookies please Opt out.
By clicking “Accept”, you consent to the use of ALL the cookies visits.

Some tracking of visitors is useful though to a website owner as it helps us to see what pages a visitor is viewing.
Therefore, I have now changed my Analytical software to Matomo Matomo Analytics. All data will be stored on my private server. I do not share any of this information to others.
The information is anonymized at the time of the visit and is stored directly to my server log. I do not see or gather any personal data.

The reports that are produced show:

  • the pages that a user has visited
  • how long they were on each page
  • the referrer (how they found my site (e.g. Google, Bing, Pinterest, Facebook etc)
  • the country the visitor is from

Cookies and Tracking

Cookieless Tracking
The Matomo Analytics tool that I use doesn’t use cookies to track visits. It has Full GDPR compliance as data is kept safe and isn’t used for any purpose other than analytics.
