Measuring website usage (Google Analytics)

We use Google Analytics software to collect information about how you use SCILLY.GOV.UK. We do this to help make sure the site is meeting the needs of its users and to help us make improvements.

Google Analytics stores information about:

  • the pages you visit on SCILLY.GOV.UK
  • how long you spend on each SCILLYGOV.UK page
  • how you got to the site
  • what you click on while you’re visiting the site

We do not collect or store your personal information (for example your name or address) so this information can’t be used to identify who you are.

Embedded content (Google Maps, YouTube and Twitter)

We embed YouTube videos, Google Maps and Twitter feeds on some pages of the site. These services set cookies when you visit a page that includes their content.

You can review Google’s policies at the following page:
