How we use anonymous data

Our web servers collect anonymous data about visits to the EITI website. This information is stored in log files and is sometimes used to create aggregate statistics about when the website is accessed, which pages refer visitors to us, the type of web browsers visitors use, which pages are viewed. These statistics help us understand how the website is used and provide us with valuable information for improving it for you in the future. This data cannot be used to identify you personally.

We also make use of Google Analytics to collate usage information about our website. The purpose of this is to produce statistics that we use to improve and further develop the information available on our site. Examples of what the statistics give us are the answer to how many people visit different pages, how long the visit lasts and which sites users are coming from and which browsers are used.
