Cookies and Analytics
Google analytics is used on Jalview’s web sites to analyse usage and identify parts of the site that need to be improved. The Jalview Desktop also incorporates a client for Google Analytics, but this is only activated when the user agrees to its use. In all cases, data collected are anonymous.
The cookie consent banner should appear at the bottom of the page when you first visit the Jalview website. This controls whether cookies are set by the Google analytics and Twitter timeline components which are included in the Jalview site. If you have Do Not Track set in your browser, then Jalview’s site will automatically adjust cookie consent to Decline, and no consent banner will be shown.
- Okay : (anonymous) Google analytic data will be collected (described above) and twitter’s timeline may set tracking cookies.
- Decline : Google analytic data collection is disabled, and a “Do Not Track” request is passed to the twitter timeline panel.
