I'm using Plausible Analytics to keep some site visitor analytics (how many users visited in the last X days) and that's it. No cross-site tracking, no Google Analytics, nothing fancy or evil.
I personally despise website tracking and always use multiple content blockers on all devices, and a Pi-Hole on my home network.
I don't need to track your interests just because I need to see how many people visited my website. I don't care what you're into, who you are, or where you're from.
I also removed the cookie banner from the website since I no longer use Google Analytics and cookies. But if you're in doubt, here're some more details:
No cookie consent is needed because:
- Tracking cookies are not used
- The data is not used for any other purpose than analytics
- Visitors aren’t tracked across websites
- A user cannot be tracked across days within the same website (no user profiles can be generated when cookies are disabled)
- The collected analytics data contains no personal data.
- The collected data is only used for analysis and no other purpose.
- The data is not shared or connected with data from other websites.
Here's the link for how Plausible Analytics is compliant with GDPR and other privacy laws, if you're interested.
May we see a web with no tracking cookies.
