Like many other website owners, I use Google Analytics on BaliManual.com.
Google Analytics is a piece of software that collects data about the visitors of this website (you). It’s something like an advanced server log.
What does Google Analytics record?
- What website you came from to get here
- What country you are visiting this site from
- How long you stay for
- What kind of computer you’re using
- And quite a bit more
What do I do with your data?
The tracking information allows me to better understand the kind of people who come to my site and what content they’re reading. This allows me to make better decisions about design and writing.
Occasionally, I will compile aggregate statistics about the number of visitors this site receives and browsers being used. No personally identifying data is included in this type of reporting.
All of my activity falls within the bounds of the Google Analytics Terms of Service.
