On fluteandpianoteaching we use cookies for tracking site usage and for the security of our logged in users. We do not store personal information of any kind.

Tracking site usage

In order to track site usage we use Google Analytics. Cookies are needed to enable Google Analytics to function. Google Analytics is a common method used by websites throughout the world for tracking users visits to a website.

Google Analytics collects information about:

  • the pages our users visit on fluteandpianoteaching.co.uk
  • the time they spend on each fluteandpianoteaching.co.uk page
  • how they get to the site
  • what they click on while visiting the site

The data collected by Google Analytics is only ever seen by our web analysis team. It does not collect any personal information (eg name and address) and therefore this information can't be used to identify individual users.

__utmz tells us where the user came from. I.e. did they find us through a search engine or from another website or another method.
