We do allow Google to use this data to collate and aggregate benchmarking data, which they provide to us, about similar websites in our industry. To do this, Google further anonymizes the analytics data by removing all identifiable information about our website. It also combines the data with hundreds of other anonymous sites in comparable industries.
We do not share our analytics data with any other third parties.
