Following their documentation, Google Analytics is configured to anonymize your IP, meaning it can not be linked to you. This also means that only your approximate geographical location is known; I have no interest in this data, but it can not be configured in another way, or I would have. This information is not stored anywhere, it's only used by Google Analytics to display visitor traffic based on location.
Google Analytics is also configured to use a cookie that uniquely and anonymously identifies your browser; it is not linked in any way with you or any other personally identifiable information. The single purpose of this cookie is for knowing how many users are visiting my blog and the most visited pages, so I can better understand what to write about. I explicitly named this cookie
Google Analytics Cookie, as to be easy to spot; it expires in 2 years. There's also a
_gid version of this cookie that has the same purpose, but expires in 24 hours. More info can be found here. Detailed guides on how to delete or disable cookies from your browser can be found here.
I do not knowingly contact or collect personal information from children under 13. If you believe I have inadvertently collected such information, please contact me so I can promptly obtain parental consent or remove the information.

Their use of information is limited to these purposes, and subject to agreements that require them to keep the information confidential. They provide assurance that they take reasonable steps to safeguard the data they hold on my behalf, although data security cannot be guaranteed.
