This site uses Google Analytics to track the number of visitors.

You can opt out of Google Analytics.

The site is routed through Cloudflare’s servers to enable it to be rendered securely via https.

This site is a static site, served via GitHub pages. That means most of the content (apart from the highly necessary gifs) is either text or images. There is no database in the background logging information.
