Google Analytics (Performance)

Google Analytics is a simple, easy-to-use tool that helps website owners measure how users interact with website content. As a user navigates between web pages, Google Analytics provides website owners JavaScript tags (libraries) to record information about the page a user has seen, for example the URL of the page.

We use Google analytics to track which pages are most popular, so we can focus on these areas to give you a better user experience.

_ga (2 years)

_gid (24 hours)

_gat (1 minute)

Font Awesome

We use Font Awesome’s content delivery network to load icons, Font Awesome collects data about what icon files you download and when.

Font Awesome uses data about how you use Font Awesome content delivery networks to:

  • optimise the content delivery networks, so website visitors can download files quickly
  • diagnose and debug technical errors
  • defend the content delivery networks from abuse and technical attacks
  • calculate fees for Font Awesome Pro customers
  • compile statistics on icon popularity
  • compile statistics on the kinds of software and computers visitors use

Font Awesome usually stores data about how you use content delivery networks in identifiable form for just a few weeks. In special circumstances, like extended investigations about technical attacks, Font Awesome may preserve log data longer, for analysis. Font Awesome stores aggregate statistics about use of content delivery networks indefinitely, but those statistics don’t include data identifiable to you personally.
