Subject Privacy Clause in Google Analytics Terms of Service
Date Wed, 17 Sep 2008 18:33:21 GMT
In reviewing the Terms of Service for Google Analytics (

), I noticed that the Privacy Section (Term 7) contains:

   "You must post a privacy policy and that policy must provide notice  
of your use of a cookie that collects anonymous traffic data."

On ethical grounds and in order to conform with these terms of  
service, we need to change our web site. I see two options:

1) Add a privacy clause to our web site
2) Remove Google Analytics from our web site

Thoughts? I'd like to see a quick change to bring us into conformance.  
I have some concerns about the data being gathered by Google and have  
my doubts about whether or not we should be gathering the data. In the  
near-term, I'd be satisfied with the addition of an appropriate  
privacy clause to our web site.
