The sites on the degroote.mcmaster.ca domain, including this one, use Google Analytics. Some information, such as the pages you visit and your IP address, is sent to Google. Google may also set and read cookies in your browser.
We use Google Analytics data to analyze how people use the site and to make improvements.
We also use tracking methods to help us understand how people interact with pages after they arrive from specific sites or ads. For example, we can collect data about what people do on our sites after they click an advertisement or promoted post on a social media platform. It can also help us tailor content for people who have visited our site before.
We post questions you can answer using buttons on a specific page or links in an email. The results are shown publicly on the site. When you answer, we collect and store your IP address. We use the IP addresses to help discourage people from answering questions more than once.
We may also set and read cookies in your browser for administrative purposes. For example, we may use a cookie to see if you’ve already taken a specific action on the site. We don’t store personally identifiable information in those cookies.
