Google Analytics is one of the most trusted analytics solutions on the internet used for helping webmasters to understand how visitors use the site and about the ways can improve visitor experience. With our permission, they collect standard internet log information and details of visitor behaviour patterns.

We have not consented or allowed Google Analytics to make any attempt to find out the identities of visitors to our website.
Articles on our site may include embedded content (e.g. videos from YouTube.com). Embedded content from other websites behaves similarly as if the visitor has visited their website (e.g. YouTube.com).
Visitor comments and interactions with us may also be checked through an automated spam detection service.
Besides, from time to time we test new features and make subtle changes to the way that the website is delivered and to enhance user experience. During these tests, we may also use third-party software.
