Under the GDPR a website is required to:-

What is Google analytics
Google analytics is a web analysis tool that generates detailed statistics about user activity for website optimisation purposes.
What information does Google analytics gather
Google Analytics sets a first party cookie on a user’s device, this sends data to Google about the visitor’s device and movement around a website. It tracks the visitor across devices and marketing channels. This information is then displayed to me via Google’s secure analytics dashboard.
