This site uses Google Analytics. Google Analytics is a piece of software that grabs data about this site’s visitors (you). It’s something like an advanced server log. Google Analytics records: What website you came from to get here. How long you stay for. What kind of computer you’re using. And quite a bit more.
The tracking information allows us to better understand the kind of people who come to this site and what content they’re reading. This allows us to make better decisions about design and writing.
Occasionally, we will compile aggregate statistics about the number of visitors this site receives and browsers being used. No personally identifying data is included in this type of reporting.
All of our activity falls within the bounds of the Google Analytics Terms of Service.
You can opt out of Google’s advertising tracking cookie (http://www.google.com/privacy_ads.html) or use a browser plugin to opt out of all Google Analytics tracking software (http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en).
