1 – Analytics
We collect aggregated data about how people in general use this website, such as the number of times each game page is visited, how long people stay on a page, how many pages a visitor goes to in a session, to keep track of how often people visit the site, and general statistics such as these. These statistics are used by Solitaire Network to maintain and improve this website. For example, by using analytics, we know which types of games players prefer and we can develop more games that people like. Analytics also help us to plan server resources and upgrades to keep the website running smoothly, in addition to other similar things.
Solitaire Network uses Google Analytics for this service. It places a cookie that does not contain personally identifiable information, but is wholly used in support of the above website goals. Solitaire Network uses only the minimum set of features necessary to use Google Analytics in its most basic form. Solitaire Network does not use Google Analytics for advertising purposes or for User ID. Furthermore, Solitaire Network goes an extra step and anonymizes all IP addresses before sending anything to Google Analytics.
