Data analytics and service improvement
We use Google Analytics to measure website use and improve your experience of our website and our communications. For example, we use this information to:
· find out when our systems aren’t working as expected
· understand user needs and what’s hard to use on our online services and applications
· learn where we can streamline services
· cater for different types of browsers and devices you use
· develop relevant support information to help you interact with us, and
· improve our ability to assist stakeholders when they contact us for help.
Google Analytics transmits website traffic data to Google servers in the United States of America (USA). Google Analytics does not identify individual users or associate your IP address with any other data held by Google. We use reports provided by Google Analytics to help us understand website traffic and webpage usage.
We may also use other third party analytics tools (such as Hootsuite) along with Google Analytics for the purpose of improving our communications with you and the public.
The types of information we may collect from third party analytic tools includes:
· Internet Protocol (IP) address
· browser and operating system, for example whether you use Internet Explorer or Chrome, Windows or iOS
· date and time of website visit
· pages visited, mouse clicks and documents downloaded from our websites
· device type, model, screen size and orientation
· language and geographic location (city/country) preferences (if enabled)
· demographics and interests, for example age bracket and gender, along with interests expressed through online behaviour
· fields you’ve entered information into (such as search terms)
· how long it took to do certain tasks
· how you move through pages and the referring domain and outlink (if applicable).
To improve your experience on our site, we may also use ‘cookies’. Cookies are pieces of information that a website can transfer to an individual’s computer hard drive or hand held device for record keeping. Cookies can make websites easier to use by storing information about your preferences on a particular website. The information is used by us to help improve our website by understanding how it is used and effective communication methods for diverse audiences. We do not attempt to identify individual users in any way.
Third party sites that we use to communicate with the public about our work (e.g. Twitter, Facebook and YouTube) may also send their own cookies to your computer. We do not control the setting of third-party cookies. You can check the third-party websites for more information about their cookies and how to manage them
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
