Website analytics

Anonymous data about how many visitors we have and what they pages they visit. We use Matomo which seems to be a privacy-friendly way to get a sense of what users are doing on our website.

Hosting

Firebase Hosting serves our web traffic for us, and they probably collect some data about who visits sites they serve.
