     9Update: https://medium.com/@subsign/google-analytics-and-gdpr-compliance-3fad792babf5 says that the GDPR considers an IP address as PII (personally identifiable information). That makes sense if the GDPR's "indirectly" (for methods of identifying) can include non-public things (e.g. a hosting company provides assistance with turning IP address + plugin combinations back into a website and thus into a person (though probably with just the IP address and the site install info anyone could do that anyway via using the various public reverse "what is hosted on this IP?" lookup tools)).
