VISITOR ANALYTICS

Visitor analytics is a simple website analytics service which measures the traffic and visitors’ general details of the customers’ websites. Collecting these statistics, a website can make their visitors’ experience better (e.g. which pages they visit and when, where they are approximately located, where does a user land first or if they are coming from a specific referral).

As a website owner using Visitor Analytics, we are using cookies to collect data about visitors’ device type and screen size, approximate location, browser, operating system, internet protocol address, page visits, bounce rate, conversions and popular content on the website. All this data is pseudonymised and Visitor Analytics will never use the collected data to identify individual users or to match it with additional information on an individual user. Each visitor has control over the cookies placement.
