Google Analytics is in use on the Illinois Wiki. Analytics data is collected across all spaces for use in monitoring and improving the Illinois Wiki service. Space owners may also be using Google Analytics to improve user experience for their specific spaces. For example, if we know what browsers and screen resolution our users have, we are better able to design web pages that suit our users. Also, if we see that few people use a particular link or page, then we can remove it from our site. The statistics we gather are aggregate. We do not retain any specific information about a particular user.
Visitors who wish to opt-out from analytics tracking may do so by installing the opt-out add-on for their browser, available from Google here: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.
The data collected is general service/site usage and statistical information.
No user-identifiable data is collected. IP addresses, if collected, are anonymized. For more information about IP Anonymization in Analytics, see https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/2763052
