Web analytics data is collected anonymously (by recording anonymous IP addresses) by Google Analytics. It enables us to measure the audience of our website, the visits, and possible errors to improve the user experience always. This data is used by Forbidden City News, the data controller, and will never be transferred to a third party or used for purposes other than those detailed above.
