    Question Web Statistics

    Hi there,
    I would like to find out the stats on users browsering my site. I currently look after a school website. I have noticed that some websites state in their privacy and disclaimer that they take a record of the ip address, brower info, the pages visits etc. If I want to retrieve information on who is looking at site for marketing purposes. Do I need to write in the privacy/disclaimer that I am collecting this info in my website and if I don't, is there legal issues involved. I recently removed the code to retrieve stats from my site as I was unsure of any legal issues.

    I would include a privacy statement - it would take too much time. Really the only "personal" information that you are tracking is their IP

    Yes I agree it isn't alot taking their ip address, but I was just unsure if there was some policy involved when collecting web stats.
