I use Google Analytics [third-party service] to collect standard internet log information and details of visitor behaviour patterns. I do this to find out things such as the number of visitors to the various parts/pages of the site. This information is only processed in an anonymous way — a way that does not identify anyone. I do not make, and do not allow Google to make, any attempt to find out the identities of individuals using/visiting best-ecig.co.uk.
