This is the V0LT Analytics Engine.

V0LT Analytics are designed first and foremost with privacy in mind. If you're interested into how the system works, you can learn about it here!

The main concept behind V0LT Analytics is to get useful metrics on page usage, without being able to trace back a specific action to any specific user. In order to accomplish this, different metrics are recorded seperately from each other. The following are the metrics recorded by the V0LT Analytics engine:

  1. Page loads by date (but not who)
  2. Page loads by hour (but not who, or the date)
  3. Page loads by hour by month (but not who, or the exact day)
  4. Page loads by IP (but not when)

This system is designed so that any specific user's activity can't be tracked, but can still be recorded for gauging overall user interest in different V0LT projects. For example, if you were to visit the programs page, V0LT would be able to see that you did, but not when, or anything you did there. This would also add a add a visit to that month in the analytics database. However, these two metrics can't be cross referenced, so V0LT wouldn't be able to see when you visited the Programs page.

V0LT also never uses activity tracking. The only logging ever done, is when a page loads. Nothing you do on that page is logged in any way. This includes keystrokes, mouse location, or any other metrics. Even if you click a link, all V0LT can see is that you loaded the linked page, not where you came from.
