Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

We run Google Analytics on our site to measure the popularity of our blog posts and other content.

In doing so, we collect the following: 

  • Time of visit, pages visited, and time spent on each page of the webpages
  • Referring site details (such as the URI you came through to arrive at our site)
  • Type of web browser
  • Type of operating system (OS)
  • JavaScript support, screen resolution, and screen color processing ability

That information is all anonymized and sent to Google, but neither them nor us sell or share that with anyone else.
