Analytics

The Service uses Google Analytics in real time.  The purpose of using this data is to help us make better business decisions based on numbers and to provide better service to our users.  We also use this data to make our website better for both the user and the creator. Google Analytics is a system that automatically collects data as you use the Service.  This data helps us create better future content to meet the needs of visitors. If we know what the visitor wants, we are better able to create content to satisfy their searches.  Google Analytics is active in real time throughout your visit to the Service.

To help us make better business decisions, our Google Analytics accounts has enabled the ability to track a user’s language, new vs returning visitors, number of sessions on our website and page views, frequency of user visits, how recent a user visited our website, the amount of time spent on our site, service provider, mobile vs desktop user data, number of visitors to our site, bounce rate, and what pages on our site the user visits.

We use Google Analytics to assess the type of browser and OS you are using. It provides us with data such as how we rank on Google, organic traffic, what posting times perform better than others, your internet connection, affiliate link tracking, which of our tags or categories is more popular than others, e-commerce tracking, user data across platforms and devices, user location, Google AdSense tracking, the kind of computer or device you use, what files were downloaded from our website, user search and browsing behavior on our site, referral sources, to see our most-frequented articles and pages, universal monitoring, and other features.  Google Analytics helps us identify and understand user patterns better. It gives us information about what kind of device you are using, your location, your device’s communication with the Service, and the way you use our website. We use Google Analytics to understand our website better through statistical analysis.

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.
