Cookies and Website Traffic Analysis

Cookies are text files which identify users’ computers to the website’s server.
Cookies in themselves do not identify individual users but identify only the computer used and they are deleted on departure from the website.

Many websites do this to track traffic flows, whenever users visit those websites.

This helps to determine what information is most popular and can influence future website content and development.

For this purpose, www.lgbthealth.org.uk uses Google Analytics to measure and analyse usage of the website. The information collected will include IP Address, pages visited, browser type and operating system. The data gathered will not be used to identify any user personally.
