Google Analytics Demographics
We are committed to ensuring that our website contains content that is valuable and useful to our readers.
To help us with this we have implemented the Google Analytics Demographics and interest reporting features on our website. These tools allow us to review anonymous data regarding the gender, age, and interests of website visitors and adapt our website content to better reflect their needs.

GA records your approximate location down to town level, the type device you are using (e.g. mobile, desktop, tablet), operating system (Windows or iOS) and browser (e.g. Firefox, Chrome, Safari etc.). None of this data can be used to identify you.
Google does record your IP address however, we don’t have access to this information and it modifies it so that you can not be identified specifically, just the area that you are in.
You can disable Google Analytics by downloading the browser add-on for the deactivation of Google Analytics provided by Google at: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en
