Not so impersonal
With analytics the site got : your country, your IP adress --> your internet service provider

I don't know but they can if they want.
Mostly ALL website you visit uses google analytics, google know your IP
worst case scenario you can be traced / tracked everywhere and they know who you are
you have a internet connection --> your ISP know you --> they have access to ISP database
or did you have a facebook acount ? member of a online dating site ? Make some online bank transactions ? ever pay with you credit card ?

With your IP adresse and the right tools there is no boundary about the data they can collect about YOU personally.
