New Privacy feature: "Disable all tracking cookies" (EU Privacy regulation update)
|Reported by:||matt||Owned by:|
Discussed in forum post New EU Privacy regulation: we need an "opt-in" for statistics cookies.
- piwik.js new method disableCookies() that would 1) delete existing cookies if any 2) skip all cookie setters
- In the JS display code page, we should add a box that when ticked, would add the call to piwikTracker.disableCookies() in the JS snippet, see #1845
Another idea is to add a Setting in addition to the JS customization. The setting when enabled would hide all reports that will not work after stop using cookies (Days since visit, unique visitors, etc.). But the overhead of adding a setting does not sound worth the benefit of less UI clutter... especially since this law is really extreme and Piwik users are doing a lot better by default in terms of privacy protection!
Useful & quite easy feature, so good one anyway, in line with our fight for better Privacy to all.
