Our analytics tracking does not use cookies anymore

Today I did a change in the way the tracking of Redistats works. Redistats always had the functionality to determine if a hit was from a new unique visitor or same visitor for those people that had cookies disabled in their browser. I do this by saving an anonym hash token in Redis.

Today I changed just a few lines of code so that Redistats does not set any cookies at all during tracking. This should not affect measuring in any noticeable way.

This make it easier to use Redistats for GDPR compliance and no need to have any cookie consent form when using Redistats. It is also worth repeating that the Redistats tracking does not save any personal data and no IP numbers are saved in any form. See the privacy policy.
