Tracking: collecting information
Most websites use an analytics service for tracking visits and visitors. Such services are Google Analytics, StatCounter and Piwik. What they all have in common is that they track numerous pieces of data in order to derive rich statistics. Among others, they track the IP address of the device from which the visit happened, the type of that device, its operating system, the Web browser and its version, the pages that were visited, in which order and for how long. Webmasters use the resulting information to improve their popularity and competitiveness and attract advertisements from companies that target people like the ones who visit the website.
Glossotechnema.eu does not use any analytics/tracking service. This is a decision that respects your anonymity. I believe it is not right to monitor a person’s online activities all the time and in such depth. I prefer to not know the number and kind of people who visit my website rather than to collect all those ethically questionable data.
