"Collecting data from one’s visitors is very useful, and it is possible to do so despite the GDPR, including via Matomo, the solution we have chosen. It incorporates the right to be forgotten – meaning a user wants a website to delete all the data it has collected about him or her – and the ability to choose not to be tracked at all when visiting a site. That is why we have chosen Matomo. High security, high flexibility, and we know exactly who is looking at the data collected." Read more
