The free libre open source analytics software Matomo (formerly known as Piwik) is now on the fediverse:

@Matomo

They also have a website:

matomo.org/

The software costs nothing if you self-host, and they also offer a paid hosted option for people who prefer it.

Unlike Google Analytics, Matomo's data stays entirely on the site that uses it. No one else has access to it, so there's no way for it to be aggregated across many sites.

So the hosted version has access to the analytics data of all the visitors of all the sites using the hosted version, and can track people exactly like Google? (but on a much more limited subset of websites, obviously)

@mathieu @switchingsocial @Matomo
Thanks for the notice. Every customer has a completely separate Matomo instance and no data is connected between them.

@lukas @switchingsocial @Matomo that's very good to hear. 🙂

I take it you work at Matomo?

Can you share some more details about the measures taken to ensure the company doesn't link these data, now or in the future? (e.g about being bought by a bigger company which would be less ethical than Matomo seems to be)

@mathieu @switchingsocial @Matomo If you can wait until Monday for a proper response I'll forward this to the rest of the team.

@lukas @switchingsocial @Matomo I can absolutely wait.

Thank you for engaging like this, too few companies do, and it makes it much easier to trust Matomo. 🙂
