Usage Tracking


Zona Wyyerd tracks user traffic patterns on our site. However, we do not correlate this information with data about individual users.

Zona Wyyerd sometimes tracks and catalogs the search terms that users enter in our Search function, but this tracking is never associated with individual users. We use tracking information to determine which areas of our sites users like and don’t like based on traffic to those areas. We do not track what individual users read, but rather how well each page performs overall. This helps us continue to build a better service for you.
