To give you the safest, and best experience online, GDPR requires us to inform you how and why we use your data. By Using EMPWR.ie, submitting data (via forms) to our website, or signing up for updates, you’re agreeing to the following policy statement. You'll have as much fun reading this, as we had writing it (soz).
Analytics and Advertising
Google Analytics allows us to collect data related to the clicks and choices you make on our website. It collects information that is not unique to you such as; geographical location, age, gender, preferences and interests.
This allows us to process information about how many views articles get, how long users stay on site, and where they’re visiting from. It helps tell us where our users are located, how they found us (Google search, Twitter link etc) and what device they’re scrolling on. This information is not used to track individual users. It helps us to get an overall picture of how the website is performing from a statistical standpoint.
This data is stored on our Google Analytics account, and isn't shared with any third parties.
Google Adsense is a plug-in that we use to serve relevant ads to you. We do this so that we can continue to fund our website and brand, without charging users. The information collected is based on what you’ve previously searched and other websites that you've used. It is not personally identifiable information.
You can find out more about advertising and online privacy here.
