Website and social media

St Mungo’s is committed to keeping your data safe. We’re also committed to being up front and honest about what information we’re collecting, why we do this, and how we use it. Return to our Central Privacy Policy.

Visiting our website

When you visit www.mungos.org we use a third party service, Google Analytics, to collect standard internet log information and details of visitor behaviour patterns. We do this to track interest on specific pages, see how the site is being used and look at how we can make improvements to the site. The information is only processed in a way that does not identify anyone.

We do not make, and do not allow Google to make, any attempts to find out the identities of those visiting the St Mungo’s website. If we do ever try and link our cookies and tracking information, we will be up front about it, explaining why and what we intend to do with it.

You can read more about how we use cookies on our cookies page.
