With the email notification for the latest upgrade, I saw the link to this article: Piwik and GDPR assumptions: What do you need to know in order to have a Piwik GDPR compliant installation?. It’s about GDPR, apparently a new privacy law or regulation being proposed in Europe.
If this is the wrong place to post this, I apologize, and please move it. (I have to think you might want a whole board to handle all the questions this is likely to spawn.)
I only use Piwik as a security tool for my 2 very small sites - get a spammer’s IP address, for example. (Mostly I’m only interested in the Real-Time Visitors section and Visitor Log.) If we can’t see IP addresses, doesn’t that prevent us from securing our sites properly?
And second, a question about the penalty. If your site is not proprientary, earns no income, how can you be penalized? Me and my sites originate in the US, btw.
Does this only apply to proprietary sites? Or maybe only sites of a certain size?
Do I understand correctly that we could use Piwik’s Log Analytics to continue to see what GDPR considers personal data?
Thank you very much!
