Google Analytics does not collect any personally identifiable information about you. Please read the Google Analytics privacy document for more details.

I collect no other information about you unless you explicitly choose to provide it. The latter typically happens when you subscribe for site updates, send me an email or leave a comment, where your name, email address, and whatever other information you provide is recorded.
