Heed Google Analytics’ Warning About Data Retention—Or Risk Losing Years of Stored Info

Guess what type of email we love getting here at Valet? Anything that isn’t a notification.

It’s not that notifications upset us. We know they’re necessary. It’s just that we receive so many of them.

The reason we get so many notifications is that we support and love so many websites. Each of those websites is wired up to many services, and all of those services send out notifications.
