I use the analytics software Piwik to gather information about this site's traffic. Piwik downloads a small file called a cookie to your browser when you visit. The cookie records your browsing activity, including the date and time you visited and your IP address. (An IP address is a unique number created by your internet service provider that allows websites and your computer or device to send information back and forth.)
Piwik anonymizes all user IP addresses and I delete visitor logs after 6 months. The full list of data Piwik tracks is located here. I do not voluntarily share this data with anyone. However, if I am ordered by a judge or law enforcement to turn over user data, I will comply.
