Google Analytics


Google Analytics is a product that Traffic Wales use to do things such as keep track of the number of visitors to the site and the length of their stay. We use this information to monitor the number of visits per month and to see how an incident/event increases demand on the website.

The metrics obtained through the use of first-party Google Analytics cookies do not include any information that would allow us to personally identify visitors to the website; the data is anonymous. The anonymised data that is collected is stored on Google's servers.

Full details of the cookies set by Google Analytics are published on the Google website. Google also publishes a browser add-on to allow you to choose that information about your website visit is not sent to Google Analytics.
