Website Specific Data
We use Google Analytics to understand who is visiting the The Knot Agency website. This helps us to improve the content to suit the majority of users. Google Analytics records which pages you view within the site, how you arrived at the site and some basic information about your computer. All of the information is anonymous, so we do not know anything about you, just that somebody visited our site.
The information collected from Analytics helps us to understand what parts of the site are most popular, how people arrive at the site and so on. Like most websites, we use this information to improve the website.
Linkedin, Facebook and other social networks
These social networks provide social buttons such as the "like" and "Tweet" buttons. To do so, we embed code that they provide and we do not control this ourselves. In order for these buttons to function, they know if you are logged in; for example Facebook use this to say that "x of your friends like this". We do not have any access to that infomation, nor can we control how those networks use it.
Social networks could know that you are viewing this website, if you use their services (they may not, but there is a chance their policies may change in the future without us knowing). As kn8t.com is suitable for all audiences, then this is unlikely to be a concern for most users.
