For example, if you read an article on our website and decide to order a product using a link we provided, we will not get identifiable information regarding your purchase or registration.
Embedded content from other websites
Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
Measuring website usage (Google Analytics)
We use Google Analytics to collect information about how people use this site. The purpose is to ensure we’re meeting our readers’ needs, and to understand how we can do things better.
Google Analytics stores various types of information including which pages you visit, how long you stay on the site, where you got here from, what you click on, and information about your device and your web browser.

Google may also transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on Google’s behalf. Google will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google.
If you’re unhappy with the idea of sharing the fact you visited our sites (and any other sites) with Google, you can install the official browser plugin for blocking Google Analytics.
