You can choose to make your site statistics publicly visible or only accessible to you as a site owner and to the representatives you designate.
Data is transmitted from your site to our servers and between our data centers via encrypted channels. To prevent data loss, we use distributed storage and maintain several fully-functional instances of statistics for a particular site.
We strive to safeguard your data from external threats, and employee access to Yandex.Metrica user data is provided on a strict need-only basis (for example, if required for support service operations).
We distribute an an opt-out extension for the most popular browsers. This extension blocks the storage of cookie files on the website visitor’s computer and restricts data transmission to Yandex.Metrica.
Visitors to your site can also disable the passing of any data to Yandex.Metrica – as well as to other cookie-based analytics systems – by setting their browser to its respective “block all cookies’’ mode.
You can turn off Yandex.Metrica tracking on selected pages. To do so, simply don’t add the Yandex.Metrica counter code to them. If you use the Session replay option, you can disable the recording of keystrokes in form fields that may contain personal information. To do so, mark such fields with the CSS class -metrika-nokeys, make them password type fields, or add the whole form to iframe.
We do not provide site owners with the full IP addresses of site users. This default setting cannot be overriden.
We do not show Yandex search queries that brought fewer than 10 users to your site during a chosen date range. This is done to prevent site owners from getting detailed information about a particular user.
