This website uses Google Analytics to collect data from visitors.

I decided to use Google Analytics so I could have an idea of what people check on this website. Also, it is nice to know from which countries I get more visitors.

What data does Google Analytics collect?

Collected data includes the country from where you visit the website, how long you stay in it, which device you are using (desktop, tablet, mobile) and more. You can learn more about Google Analytics by visiting this link.

What do you do with the data collected by Google Analytics?

I use the data to understand who visits my website so I can improve the visitor's experience. For instance, if the data shows that most visitors are using mobile devices, then I might change the website layout so it works better on mobile. If the website suddenly starts getting many hits from e.g. China, I might investigate possible reasons for it (and maybe get some help to localize the contents).

Please note that I do not want to personally identify you; I want to have a statistical view of how this website is being used.

Also, since I hate when companies and people share my info without my permission, I do not share any data with anyone (except Google, who actually shares the data they collect with me).

I do not want to share data with you. How can I opt out of tracking?

Google developed the Google Analytics opt-out browser add-on, which you can find here.
