Measuring our visitors
Visitors to Archaeology Travel are tracked using Google Analytics. This involves recording basic information such as how you arrived at our site, what pages you viewed, as well as some basic information about your computer – such as what country you are in, what device you are using (desktop/laptop/smartphone). All of this information is anonymous – so you or your device can never be identified, just that somebody visited our site.

The information collected via Google Analytics helps to understand what parts of our sites are doing well, how people arrive at our site and so on. Like most websites, we use this information to make our website better. You can learn more about Google Analytics if you wish.

Facebook, Twitter and other social media networks
These services provide social buttons and similar features which appear on Archaeology Travel – such as the ‘Like’ and ‘Tweet’ buttons.

To do so code provided by these social networks is embedded. To function these ‘buttons’ generally know if you are logged in. For example Facebook use this to say ‘x of your friends like this’. We do not have any access to that information, nor can we control how those networks use it.

Social networks therefore could know that you’re viewing Archaeology Travel, if you use their services (that is not to say they do, but their policies may change). Archaeology Travel is entirely inoffensive, so this should never be a concern for most, if not all, users.

Discussion comments
