Do DigitalOcean services (Droplets, Spaces, CDN) perform any user tracking by default?

As part of an exercise and inspired by DuckDuckGo and similar projects, I’m trying to create a website that specifically doesn’t track user activity.

I’m planning to use a regular Ubuntu Droplet, Spaces and CDN.

Do DigitalOcean services perform any user tracking by default that I should be aware of? If so is it possible to disable?

No we don’t have any services enabled on the resources that would track the users. You are always free to install/uninstall any 3rd party services.

Hope this helps!
