The service allows us to see aggregate information on statistics such as how many visitors we are getting to the website, where in the world they are located (based on Google’s understanding of where your internet connection may be – we cannot see exact location details), what pages are most visited, referring sites, and other reporting information that helps us analyse the usage of our website and services.
