Disclosures

I currently leverage Google Analytics to provide site metrics. To quote the mighty Google:

Google Analytics is Google's free web analytics tool that mainly helps website owners to understand how their visitors engage with their website. It also sets cookies on the domain of the site you are visiting. It uses a set of cookies with names like __utma and __utmz to collect information anonymously and report website trends without identifying individual visitors.

If you want to learn some the technical details of Analytics, check out https://developers.google.com/analytics/devguides/collection/analyticsjs/cookie-usage . The key takeaways are:

  1. You are NEVER personally-identified in any tracking data Google collects on my behalf, and
  2. I do NOT retain any tracking data on my site.
