Subject Re: Privacy Clause in Google Analytics Terms of Service
Date Wed, 17 Sep 2008 21:40:09 GMT
I'd be fine with either option.  It's certainly simple enough to add the 
privacy clause.  We can do that for now even if we decide to remove 
Analytics entirely later on.  I personally haven't been checking the 
Google Analytics very often but perhaps others have been making more use 
of it?
