Like many websites, Streaming Clarity uses analytics for insight into how we’re doing. This can include data such as when a user visits our site, how long they remain on the site, and what articles the user read during their visit.
This information can also be grouped with other user data to provide an overview of how many users were on the site, for how long, and on what pages. All of this allows us to better understand our readers, what they want, and how to better serve them in the future.
This data is collected and viewed via Google analytics. While we may occasionally share the overview group data with third-parties (e.g. advertisers), none of the data shared is identifiable data.
