Our use of Visitor Analytics technology as a service.
From Visitor Analytics:
1. Visitor Analytics
Visitor Analytics is a simple website analytics service which measures the traffic on our website and website visitors' general details. We collect statistics like which pages visitors visit and when, where they are approximately located, where they land first or if they are coming from a specific referral, to make our website visitors' experience better .
As a website operator using Visitor Analytics, we process information about our visitors' device type and screen size/resolution, approximate location, browser, OS, IPs, page visits, bounce rate, conversions, conversion funnels, average sessions per visitor, average pages per session, average session duration, time spent on the website and preferably visited content on the website. All this data is pseudonymized and Visitor Analytics will not use the collected data to identify individual users or to match the data with additional information on an individual user.
2. Visitor Recordings
Visitor Recordings is an additional feature to Visitor Analytics (described above) in the form of a simple website replay tool that records in statistics where our website visitors scrolled to and what they clicked on our website. We can see this information in playbacks and so called “heatmaps”. Collecting these statistics helps us to make our website more user-friendly as well as to reproduce and fix technical errors.
Basically, as a website operator using Visitor Recordings, we are using a snippet of tracking code to collect data about our visitors’ journey on our websites, which subpages they visit, what they clicked on, where they moved their mouse cursor to and where they scrolled. All this data is pseudonymized and Visitor Analytics will not use the collected data to identify individual users or to match it with additional information on an individual user.
From Stitched Ink Media:
Use of Analytics and your IP Address by Stitched Ink Media Website
With any third-party or integrated analytics utilized by Stitched Ink Media to measure website visits and visitor focus (as critical information) for the improvement of our site, IP Addresses are Anonymized by us and not part of our data collection process for visitor interactions with our website. Mainly, we use analytics to measure such information as which pages get visited most, session times, bounce rates, referrals, new visits, city and country location. The information we collect through our analytics, on its own, untouched and from our data collection perspective, is not personally identifiable by us specific to its user.
In this way, our analytics is used for security, site improvement and potential marketing insights.
