Google Analytics only retains info about visitors, pages viewed, etc. Google Analytics does not collect any info that could identify you personally (but they collect data around the web in various forms and aggregate it, so see further info below to manage that data).
Data collected by social media companies, such as that from embedded YouTube videos, becomes part of the data that Google collects; see the note below about managing your Google data.
How Long I Retain Your Data
Google Analytics keeps data on site traffic up to 14 months, the shortest retention period available (but remember, site stats do not have any info about who you are personally). While my site does not give Google any personal info about you, other websites might have at some point. You can find out more & use tools to manage your Google data here: https://privacy.google.com/your-data.html. You can also opt-out of Google Analytics at https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout/.
