What we collect

Media Coverage does not collect any personal identifiable information from you when you visit our website.

We do use Google Analytics, which is produced by Google itself and subject to Google’s privacy policy, to collect global information such as how many people visit our site each day, which city/country they come from, whether or not they have visited the site before, which pages they viewed, how long they stay on the site and so on.

This information is collated by Google and presented to us as global figures. Visitors are not identified individually.

We use this information provided by Google to enable us to understand how visitors use our site so we can make improvements.

We may also use similar services provided by Linked In and Twitter. We currently use Twitter advertising which helps us to put our services in front of law firms and solicitors in the UK. This does not enable us to identify individuals, not do we try to do so. We abide by the strict codes imposed both by ourselves and by Twitter in accordance with UK and EU regulations.
