As is the practice on most websites, I monitor visitor activity on this site to keep an eye on what pages are being viewed, which pages are most popular, how long visitors stay on the site, etc. This anonymous web-usage information allows me to evaluate how the site is being used and helps me to make improvements.
I use the analytics (web usage) service provided by Google (see http://www.google.com/policies/privacy/cookies/). For it to work properly, short sequences of text are stored on visiting computers. These are called “cookies” and nearly every site uses them.
You can control cookies on your own computer by changing your browser settings (see http://www.aboutcookies.org/Default.aspx?page=1) but be aware that sites you visit might not then display all of the functionality that is available.
