Hello dev team,
I think I don’t have to say how great your product is.
Anyway: We have a privacy issue in germany again. According to a court ruling, the anonymization of the IP address is not sufficient to protect the privacy of the user.
The Court criticized the use of the user based hash value as an invasion of privacy.
In germany we are not allowed to build a user profile without telling the user about that. Only to tell him wouldn’t be that problem, but we must tell him that clearly highlighted on every landing page now
Would it be possible to modify Piwik in that way, that no detection of an individual user is possible?
Of course, this feature would prevent the detection of unique visitors. But compared to other efforts, this price is rather small.
Greetings from a slightly desperate site owner,
