Why is this information collected?
As well as allowing us to know how many visits our website receives, it also gives us an idea about how visitors use our website. This helps us to develop the site more effectively. For example, if we know which pages are the most popular, we can make sure that we spend more time keeping those areas of our site up-to-date. If we know which web-browsers are most commonly used, we can check that our site works correctly on those platforms. By checking referring links, we can monitor the search-terms used to find our site and also see any other websites that are linking to us.
