Personally, as someone who is also researching GDPR, I place more value on privacy. I use Google Analytics to monitor visitor trends on my website solely based on the aggregated report provided by Google Analytics and for nothing more. Nor do I collect any additional information. I do, however, use Wowchemy, a free open-source website builder tool, and I have no control over what Wowchemy does internally.
Collecting your personal information
This website does not require you to provide any personal information. The only information collected about you is non-personally identifiable system information, such as browser information collected by Google Analytics for the purpose of measuring web traffic. Personally, I do not have access to that data, only to the aggregated reports provided by Google Analytics. Additionally, my website employs the following privacy settings.

Sharing your personal information
I collect no personal information and thus have nothing to share. Google Analytics, however, collects some information about you. To learn more, see Google Analytics Privacy.
What will be done with the data that has been collected?
Google Analytics presents the collected data as a report, which I use to gauge web traffic.
