Why We Collect User Data

Earlier today I posted a notice about the GDPR opt outs that appear on this site for UK and EU visitors. The subject got me thinking about why I collect any data at all and made me realize I should explain the situation a bit in case anyone cares.

In a nutshell RetroMaggedon.com uses Google Adsense and Analytics. I use Adsense to help keep the lights on (so to speak) since servers cost money. Analytics is just there to help me figure out what pages people use. The info I get from both services is very vague, at least on my end, and I do not release or sell data to any entities aside from Google. Acting in good faith to our visitors is very important to me and the other people involved in this project, so I hope this clarifies the matter a bit.
