Google Analytics Cookie

Like many websites I use Google Analytics to provide visitor and traffic information. This cookie gathers technical information not personal information but it does obtain the internet protocol (IP) address of the computer you are using. Other information this cookie gathers are things like, your operating system, web browser type and version and what pages you visited and how long you stayed on them. Analytics can also show how you found your way to Qwerty Design, i.e. from a Search Engine.

I use this information to help improve the website both in terms of content and functionality. Having the ability to see which blog posts people are finding useful and interesting is obviously very valuable to me.
