Processing purposes

Analytics and web logs

When you visit our sites, we use analytics tools to collect, store and analyse standard web log data, which includes the web page you have requested, the web page from which you clicked a link to if applicable), your computer’s public IP address, your web browser’s name and version number, and your device’s operating system, and any cookies we have stored when you have previously accessed our sites (if you haven’t configured your browser to refuse to store them).

In order to diagnose bugs, to gain a better understanding of usage patterns, and to identify and block abusive patterns of access, our analytics tools generate and store a unique browser identifier in a persistent cookie on your browser, which we log with each web page you request. This lets us distinguish unique users and link the log data we collect when you visit the site, with the log data from your previous and subsequent visits.
