Statistical information and cookies

The Give Nothing To Racism project is currently using Google Analytics to help analyse how users use our sites, including this site.

This analytical tool uses 'cookies', which are text files placed on your computer, to collect standard internet log information and monitor site behaviour in an anonymous form. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the site (including your computer's internet address or IP address) is transmitted to and stored by Google outside of New Zealand. The tracking data is stored in a database managed by Google. The tracking data is then used by Google to compile statistical reports on website activity for the Give Nothing To Racism Project to evaluate site use.

IP addresses are collected by the Google Analytics tool for geographic purposes however the IP addresses are not visible to us at all. Google Analytics will also collect demographic data based on the user’s internet behaviour.  Users must use incognito browsing if they do not wish Google to collect this information. We will not associate any data gathered from our sites with any personally identifying information from any source as part of our use of the Google Analytics tool.

Information collected from the use of Google Analytics does not contain personal information so therefore cannot be used to identify an individual. If an individual wishes to request the data collected by Google, they need to contact Google.
