I use Google Analytics to count how many visitors I receive!
By some laws I must annouce that I am(or more precisely Google Analytics is) using cookies to do so.
Yes, I copied & modified cookies policy from somewhere.
What are cookies?
Cookies are small pieces of data that websites store on a device. Cookies can improve your visitors’ browsing experience because they help websites remember preferences and understand how people use different features.
Cookies collect information about how visitors use the Site, for instance which pages visitors go to most often, and if they get error messages from web pages. These cookies do not collect information that specifically identifies a visitor. All information that these cookies collect is aggregated and therefore anonymous. It is only used to improve how the Site works. Cookies only collect information about the Site usage for my benefit as the Site operator.
Third party cookies
Certain cookies available on the Site are placed by third party website operators. This means that the information about you collected by those third party cookies will be shared with the relevant third party. Please refer to the relevant third party website operator’s privacy notice for more information about how they may use such information.
You should be aware that applications you use to access the Site, such as your web browser, may also place cookies on your device when visiting the Site, or other websites. An example of this would be where you sign in to Google Chrome using a Google Account (please note this is distinct from my use of Google Analytics – which is set out below). I have no control over these cookies so you will need to manage these cookies in the settings of the relevant applications.
How long do cookies last?
All cookies have expiration dates that determine how long they stay in your browser: Session Cookies – these are temporary cookies that expire (and are automatically erased) whenever you close your browser. Persistent Cookies – these usually have an expiration date and so stay in your browser until they expire, or until you manually delete them. More information is provided below about how long cookies from our Site stay in your browser.
