IP Addresses Anonymisation in Analytics

Mediators’ Institute of Ireland website is a customer of Google Analytics which is a freemium web analytics service that tracks and reports website traffic.

An IP address is a number that is assigned to your computer automatically when you use the internet. When you visit any web page in our website Analytics anonymises the address as soon as technically feasible at the earliest possible stage of the collection network. The IP anonymisation feature in Analytics sets the last octet of IPv4 user IP addresses and the last 80 bits of IPv6 addresses to zeroes in memory shortly after being sent to the Analytics Collection Network. The full IP address is never written to disk in this case.

The process of IP anonymisation in Analytics takes place within two steps in the collection pipeline: the JavaScript Tag and the Collection Network. These steps are explained below.

When IP Anonymisation takes place the last three digits of IP addresses are translated into zero (0) which provides an accurate source of website visitors’ country and less accurate source of city.

Your anonymaised IP address is used only to gather broad demographic information.

PHPSESSID

Cookie generated by applications based on the PHP language. This is a general purpose identifier used to maintain user session variables. It is normally a random generated number, how it is used can be specific to the site, but a good example is maintaining a logged-in status for a user between pages.

ci_session

Cookie normally associated with the CodeIgniter framework for building PHP based applications. Usually used to maintain a user state during a browser session for consistancy of user experience. By default the cookie is destroyed when the browser session ends, in which case it can be Strictly Necessary. However, it can optionally be stored in a database and be used for tracking users or other purposes, in such cases a category of Strictly Necessary will probably not apply.
