Why We Collect Personal Data?
We use google analytics to obtain an overall view of our visitors habits and visitor volumes. This information is used to help us improve our website. For example, knowing how long you spend on a web page can tell us if the page was useful to you. If people spend very little time on our pages, it is perhaps a signal to us to improve the content. Knowing how much time visitors spend on the same page between a desktop or mobile device can help us make our website design better.
