This site uses
Google Analytics and StatCounter. What these services do is provide information on what pages you visit on the site, for how long and how you got here – there is also information about the device that you are on such as your operating system and what brand it is. This is anonymous information so all we know is that someone visited the site.
The purpose of analytics means that we can see which articles are striving on the site and which ones aren’t doing as well – this helps us improve the articles that we publish in the future since we know what people like and then the site will be better for our visitors.
We are currently not running Google Analytics on Richard Tech, StatCounter is being used for site analytics.
We are currently not running comments on Richard Tech, so this section is not relevant.
On this site we have sharing buttons, these would be the Facebook “Like” and Twitter “Tweet” buttons and so on at the bottom of each article.
The buttons are loaded from code from the appropriate social network and may know that you are logged into your Facebook account for example so you can like the article seamlessly, we do not control this, we simply load the buttons. This does mean that social networks could know that you have been on this website or a specific article.
That’s about it
