 3 What personal data we collect and why we collect it

3.1 This website is made using WordPress. The WordPress documentation states WordPress does not collect any analytics data. Our web hosting account that is currently GoDaddy collects some anonymous analytics data for use on their dashboard panel. This shows a users IP address which is a numbered address of the computer given by your router to send the website data to after a connection. It is how computers communicate over the internet. 

3.2 Other connection information along side this IP can be data such as browser type and version and info about the connected device including the device type, operating system. This is done automatically by the hosting company but we do not use this information in anyway.

3.3 The analytics produced from this is to show the number of visits to the website or the separate pages during different time periods such as months and years. This feature is mostly a standard feature from hosting companies now by default when you host a website.
