We use Google Analytics to anonymously collect information about:

Google Analytics anonymity protections:

  • IP addresses are anonymised before data is captured

  • if a report is run which uses either the Age or Gender demographic variables, the report will not show:
    • any data attributed to someone under 18 years old
    • any output which would return a single line result of less than 12 visitors
