I have a static blog hosted on GitHub. I do not collect any data about anyone. GitHub pretty straightforward states that they do collect some data in their GitHub Privacy Statement. So if a user go to my web page he is indeed tracked, but not by me but by my hosting company.
By "tracked" I mean (stolen from here):
Server logs: when you load a page on a website, you are making a request to that website's server. This server will log the type of request that was made and will store information such as: IP address (which will allow website owners to infer location), the date and time the browser loaded the page, what page was loaded, and what site or page the browser was on before it came to that page (referrer).
