Like many other websites, the VoiceNotes website uses cookies. ‘Cookies’ are small pieces of information sent by an organisation to your computer and stored on your hard drive to allow that website to recognise you when you visit. They collect statistical data about your browsing actions and patterns and do not identify you as an individual.

Site visitation tracking

This site uses Google Analytics (GA) to track user behaviour. We use this data to determine the number of people using our site, to better understand how they find and use our web pages and to see their journey through the website. We use this data to change our website to better suit our users needs.

Although GA records data such as your geographical location, device, internet browser and operating system, none of this information personally identifies you to us. GA also records your computer’s IP address which could be used to personally identify you but Google do not grant us access to this. We consider Google to be a third party data processor (see below).

GA makes use of cookies, details of which can be found on Google’s developer guides.

Disabling cookies on your internet browser will stop GA from tracking any part of your visit to pages within this website.

Human / spam bot verification

This site uses the Wordfence security product to ensure the integrity of this site. Wordfence uses cookies for three tasks:

  • To uniquely identify visitors shown in Wordfence Live traffic. This does not personally identify you.
  • To track a user who was previously logged into WordPress but has logged out to ensure that Falcon cache does not show that user cached pages. This is for administrative users only and does not personally identify you.
  • If a user has visited a unique page that allows them to bypass country blocking a cookie is set to identify that user so that country blocking does not prevent them from viewing the site. This does not personally identify you.

The following cookies are set by WordFence:

  • wordfence_verifiedHuman – Wordfence Cookie used to verify if the visitor is a bot or human
  • wfvt_xxxxxxxxxx – Wordfence Tracks a user duration so that so that the page views can be grouped together for administrative reporting
