Embedded Content

Embedded content from other websites will behave in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Analytics

We use Google Analytics to track user behaviors and stats like total pages visited, time on page, and similar features.

These stats do not include personally identifying information and they are completely anonymous. This data is really useful so we can tell how many visitors we get in a given month and which pieces of content are the most valuable to our readers.

However if you really do not want your session analytics tracked you can use this plugin from Google. Please read more on this help page.
