In May 2018, European Union introduced GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation). According to the law, you need to take consent from the user, if you are collecting personally identifiable information or store the cookies on the user’s browsers or system.
Now, when you use Google Analytics on your website, Google Analytics stores cookies on the user’s browsers. It means that Google Analytics is not compatible with GDPR guidelines and you need to take consent from users. In order to make it work.
What if the user didn’t give his consent?
Significantly it will affect Google Analytics tracking data. You will not have accurate information about your website visitors. Because of this, you can not take data driven decisions for your business.
To get rid from this problem, we have introduced JD Cookieless Google Analytics for Joomla. The plugin does not store any cookie on the user's browser hence you don't need to take any consent from the users and you will be able to use Google Analytics without any issue.
Fully Compatible with EU Cookie Law
JD Cookieless Google Analytics Plugin for Joomla does not store any cookie on the user's browser so you don't need to take the consent from users. It also makes the IP address anonymize which is a must for GDPR Compliance.
Self-Host Google Analytics Tracking JS File
The Google Analytics Joomla plugins enables you to host Google Analytics tracking JS files locally on your website. It will keep automatically updating the script every 12 hours. As the file will be hosted locally, you will have less server requests and as a result you will see a boost in the speed of your website.
Exclude Logged in Users for More Accurate Data
In this digital age, data is everything and if you don’t have accurate data, you can’t make accurate decisions. The Cookieless Google Analytics plugin gives you the ability to exclude logged-in users based on their User Groups. It will help you to avoid users on your team from inflating and screwing your analytics tracking data
No, Google Analytics isn’t GDPR-compliant by default. That’s the reason we have developed this cookieless analytics plugin so you can use Google Analytics without storing the cookies on the user's browser.
As you will be using the analytics with the plugin and if you have disabled or uninstalled the plugin, the analytics tracking scripts will be removed and the tracking data will no longer be sent to Google Analytics.
