How information is collected

The information collected by log files include internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, Internet Service Provider (ISP), date and time stamp, referring/exit pages, and possibly the number of clicks. The purpose of the information is for analysing trends, administering the site, tracking users’ movement on the website, and gathering demographic information.

In order to analyse visitor trends and improve the user experience, Omegga also uses Independent Analytics to collect anonymous visitor data on its website, including pages visited, referring/exit page, browser type, date and time stamp. These are not linked to any information that is personally identifiable, and the linked IP addresses are anonymised.
