We collect anonymous statistics about your visit, like which of our pages you viewed. Some 3rd parties like Facebook and Twitter may know you visited this website, if you use their services. We can’t control them but we don’t believe this knowledge poses any threat to you.
Measuring our visitors
We measure visitors to our website using Google Analytics. This records what pages you view within our site, how you arrived at our site and some basic information about your computer. All of that information is anonymous – so we don’t know who you are; just that somebody visited our site.
The information we collect from Analytics helps us 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.
Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter and other social networks provide social buttons and similar features which we use on our website – such as the “Like” and “Tweet” buttons.
To do so we embed code that they provide and we do not control ourselves. To function their buttons generally know if you’re 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 this website, if you use their services (that isn’t to say they do, but their policies may change).
To allow visitors to discuss our blog articles and some web pages we use a the comments feature of Facebook.
To do so we embed code that Facebook provide and we do not control ourselves. Facebook anonymously tracks visitors to pages like we do. They also remember who you are if you login to any Facebook, so you can comment on any website using their comment feature. Your comments are personally identifiable. All comments you leave are publicly visible on the Internet alongside your name.
Only at the WalkTracker Wiki we offer the possibility to create an account. This account is linked to a Google-account, to prevent spammers to create accounts. Before a user publishes data to the wiki, he/she is told via a pop-up that data is uploaded to the public domain, and he/she can not claim ownership anymore. We offer the possibility to remove unwanted content at the wiki by sending us an email: walktrackerwiki (at) videgro.net (replace (at) with @).
