Google Analytics Germanized (GDPR / DSGVO)

Description

Google Analytics preconfigured to respect EU law (GDPR / DSGVO) and with lots of advanced analytics settings for extensive tracking possibilities.

You can use this plugin to integrate Google Analytics conform to EU law in compliance with data protection. For this you only need to put your Google Analytics ID into the general settings. Other settings (e.g. AnonymizeIP) are preconfigured accordingly and need to be changed only when needed or when extensions are desired.

For a privacy-compliant integration, it is necessary that you clarify the use of Google Analytics in your privacy policy. Additionally, a possibility for an opt-out of Google Analytics must be created. For the opt-out you can use the shortcode described in the tab general, point 3.

In the advanced settings features of Google Analytics can be activated. Corresponding information can be found in the settings.

I had earlier expressed criticism about this plugin. First via their support, which partly fell on deaf ears. After that, I voiced my critique here and was heard. I want to be fair and revise my rating after the developers have removed ads from the dashboard, as described below. Since everything else works really well, this is one of the best GDPR-Plugins out there. You should give it a try, if you are using Google Analytics. Imagine this: One of your editors is about to export the newest gravity forms entries (so a totally different plugin) and suddenly has a huge advertisement banner displayed for Bajorat media (the developer behind this plugin), right on top of the backend display, outside any settings page of this particular plugin. And the first thing your editor thinks: This shouldn't be there. Did we get hacked? And now imagine how the rest of the day goes for the dev who gets a call right after. Backend ads like that are very big no go! Will have to replace this plugin.

Thx for this plug-in. Searched the last couple of hours for something that would suit my set-up and this plug-in is perfect. It blocks the cookies till the user decides, which not all plug-ins do, even if they claim so. Great Job and thx a lot! Testet on mobile as well.

This plugin is awesome. Ive searched for different solutions and this is the only good free one i found. The support is great and you can add additional tracking cookies like the FB pixel (take a look at the forum for that)
