Web Statistics

Wasauksing First Nation uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. Google Analytics uses first-party cookies to track visitor interactions. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website (including your IP address) will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of this website, compiling reports on website activity for the website operators and providing other services relating to website activity and Internet usage. Google may also transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law or where such third parties process the information on Google’s behalf.

Wasauksing First Nation uses IP masking with Google Analytics to anonymize personal information collected by Google. IP masking is a customization that removes the last octet of the visitor’s IP address prior to its use and storage by Google. This IP information is not viewable by Wasauksing First Nation.

Website visitors who do not want to be tracked by Google Analytics can download the Google Analytics opt-out browser add-on. The add-on communicates with the Google Analytics JavaScript to indicate that information about the website visit should not be sent to Google Analytics. The add-on does not prevent information from being sent to the website itself or to other web analytics services.
