Google’s privacy policy is available at: https://policies.google.com/privacy

You can opt out of having made your activity on the Service available to Google Analytics by installing the Google Analytics opt-out browser add-on. The add-on prevents Google Analytics JavaScript (ga.js, analytics.js, anddc.js) from sharing information with Google Analytics about visits activity.
