Stripped-down non personal data version of Matomo


Is it possible to change the Matomo settings so that Matomo does not collect personal at all? For example, only the following could be tracked:

  • How often a particular page was viewed (but not by whom)
  • Which campaigns received the most clicks (but not by whom)
  • Which campaigns received the most goals, etc.

As far as I understand it, such a Matomo version would be GDPR compliant without the need to show a cookie banner and without the need for consent (as no personal data is collected).

The idea of a even more anonymized version of Matomo that maybe even could be used to track users who have DNT enabled, is definitely worth discussion, even though every implementation needs to be planned carefully.
