Google Analytics Germanized (GDPR / DSGVO)


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.

Bestes Google Analytics Plugin

Mega Plugin, da ist alles dabei. Analytics, Opt-Out und Cookie banner. Vorher hatte ich dafür 3 Plugins, jetzt eins. Wird steitg weiterentwickelt. Schneller Support. Einfach Super. Vielen Dank dafür.

Looks promising, not for US users.

Despite the plugin shows in English, there is no explanation in English and some areas are in German. Due to the language barrier and lack of info in a language I could understand, I ended up having to skip. I still gave it 5 stars because it does look very well done and functional. Hopefully a version for US/UK that could be used by sites other than .de ones (or by German speaking users) will be available in the near future. Thanks for what it looks like a nice plugin to handle cookies for google analytics opt out/in.

Zu überladen

Wäre vielleicht ein gutes Plugin, wenn es sich auf seine eigentlich Aufgabe konzentrieren würde. Leider viel zu viele Funktionen, die sich auch nicht zuverlässig abschalten lassen. Erst hatte Outbound Linktracking einen Fehler verursacht, obwohl dieses gar nicht eingeschaltet war. Nun wird diverser Inline Code, eine CSS Datei + JS Datei für die Cookie Nachricht geladen, obwohl diese abgeschaltet ist.
