They let me know what links were used to find my site and what pages are viewed. I cannot identify you as an individual using these cookies. Web site owners like me use the anonymous information we collect to improve our sites, to write better content that meets your needs and to make it easy to find meaningful stuff. However, if you still would prefer not to allow cookies, you can block all cookies with your browser (see your browser’s help file) or block just Google Analytics by using this free add-on provided by Google. EU policy dictates that I ask you to opt into having Google place a harmless little file on your computer, but I’d rather you enjoy the site’s content than present you with a popup every time you visit.
