We want to make our website easy to use. So, when someone visits www.Kite Consultancy we use a third party service, Google Analytics, to collect anonymous technical data on how visitors interact with our website content. This information is processed in a way which does not identify individuals. We do not make, and do not allow Google to make, any attempt to find out the identities of those visiting our website.

We may log certain information that your browser sends us, such as your Internet Protocol (IP) address, browser type and language, access time, and referring website addresses, and we may collect information about the pages you view within our site and other actions you take while visiting us. We do this to find out things such as the number of visitors to the various parts of the site.
