On the surface, this is a designer’s quest to responsibly gather analytics on a privacy-respecting website: rich, actionable data to support strategy and design decisions. Are simplistic page view counters the only alternative to creepy tracking? Is spoiling the user experience with consent banners inevitable for proper insight?
