How are they used on this site
This website makes use of WordPress.com Stats cookies to help generate data about the aggregated views and locations of views for specific pages. We do not have access to individual data such as IP address, only aggregated data (for example the total views to a page)
Data Used: IP address, WordPress.com user ID (if logged in), WordPress.com username (if logged in), user agent, visiting URL, referring URL, timestamp of event, browser language, country code.
Important:The site owner does not have access to any of this information via this feature. For example, a site owner can see that a specific post has 285 views, but they cannot see which specific users/accounts viewed that post. Stats logs – containing visitor IP addresses and WordPress.com usernames (if available) – are retained by Automattic for 28 days and are used for the sole purpose of powering this feature.
