This website uses Google Analytics to help analyze how visitors use this site. Google Analytics uses “cookies”, which are small text files placed on your computer, to collect standard internet log information and visitor behavior information in an anonymous form. Note the deliberate emphasis of anonymous, as no personally identifiable information is collected about you unless you explicitly submit that information on this website.
The anonymous information generated by Google Analytics cookies about your use of this website is transmitted to Google not used by this site. This information is processed to compile statistical reports on website activity for this site only. These reports evaluate aggregate visitor usage so that content can be optimised and marketing can better meet your needs. This is essential so that Sangha.org can use the analytics as a free to use service.
Sangha.org follows a standard procedure of using log files. These files log visitors when they visit websites. All hosting companies do this as a part of hosting services’ analytics. The information collected by log files include internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, Internet Service Provider (ISP), date and time stamp, referring/exit pages, and possibly the number of clicks. These are not linked to any information that is personally identifiable. The purpose of the information is for analyzing trends, administering the site, tracking users’ movement on the website and gathering demographic information.
Other than Google Analytics and standard logging procedures, no data is gathered from this site.
There is no 3rd party tracking (as might occur from viewing embedded videos from YouTube or from clicking on social icons such as LinkedIn or Twitter).
