This website uses a self-hosted instance of Plausible Analytics to collect anonymous page visit statistics. This instance is hosted at https://stats.andy-bell.com. This method of collecting data doesn't even require cookies!

You can learn more about Plausible Analytics' data collection at https://plausible.io/privacy-focused-web-analytics - the only difference is that with my self-hosted instance the data is stored in the United States, not the EU.

If you aren't comfortable with even this anonymous tracking, I would recommend using an ad-blocking extension like uBlock Origin. The fact that my instance uses a subdomain of "stats" seems to get it blocked on the default block lists.
