If the above title drew you in, good. Keep reading.
Thousands (millions?) of bloggers and other webmasters around the world use a free tool called Google Analytics to track website visitors and click-through metrics. I use it, and many bloggers I know also do. We’re all using it illegally.
Take note of section 7 (my emphasis in bold):
8.2 You agree that Google may review your website at any time to verify that you have included an appropriate statement as specified above. You further agree to make such changes to the content or positioning of the statement as Google (acting reasonably) considers necessary in order to ensure compliance with this Section 8.
But, even if I had the GA statement, I’d still be violating your privacy because the Google text above (in both versions) lacks details about how third parties use your data.
While you can opt out on a browser level, is that the best Google can do?
Think about that for a moment…
