Privacy and "what's this "Google Analytics" stuff?"

Since October 2006, Aid Workers Network has used the Google Analytics website statistics package to help us better understand who uses www.aidworkers.net.

Google Analytics presents aggregate information, and does not associate information with any particular individual. It does, however, mean that Google has some information about who visits this site, and stores this information on their servers in the United States.

If this sounds terrible to you, simply disable your internet browser's use of cookies (here's a general article from CERT about making your browser more secure). However, our privacy policy is simple: we'll delete any information we hold about you (such as that contained in your user profile) if you ask.

If you have any concerns, please email us.
