It might not surprise you that a blog on Marketing uses web analytics tools to track its visitors by collecting anonymous statistics.
Among the tools currently being used are: Google Analytics. I often try new tools, you can always see the latest ones by doing a right-mouse click in your browser and choosing View Source. All tools are clearly commented and identified by name.
Cookies: Most of the above tools use first-party cookies, small text files with a single string of 100% anonymous text or numbers. I DO NOT collect any Personally Identifiable (PII) information about website visitors using any of these tools.
The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website (including your IP address) is transmitted to Google and other Analytics vendors I end up using. This information is then used to evaluate visitors use of the website and to compile statistical reports on website activity for www.sancouncil.org.
The Web Analytics vendors used do not associate your IP address with any other data held by them. Neither I nor the Web Analytics Vendors will link, or seek to link, an IP address with the identity of a computer user. I WILL NOT associate any data gathered from this site with any personally identifiable information from any other source.
