We are trying to provide fun and interesting ways for people to learn about animal welfare, so we may ask visitors to share information or submit details to enter competitions or submit content or to help us improve the site.

We do use software to track the total number of visitors to our site and the number of visitors to each area of the site. This information only shows us which areas visitors enjoy most and helps us to improve the site. We do not extract personal information in this process. This means the user remains anonymous to us.
