Visual Website Optimizer
This website uses Visual Website Optimizer (VWO), a web analytics service from Wingjfy. VWO is an A/B and multivariate testing tool that can display different versions of the same website. A code is integrated into the HTML code of the website to provide this functionality. When a visitor arrives on the website, a query is passed to the VWO server to see if a test is available. Depending on the response from the VWO server, elements of the website may be automatically replaced by a test version. This site view and, if the user has clicked on the website (e.g. a form request), the user click are counted and saved. Only the numbers of site views and site clicks are recorded.
