Support » Plugin: Google Analytics Germanized (GDPR / DSGVO) » One of the best GDPR-plugins out there

  • 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.

    Sorry to hear that, but no hacker will integrate a banner with a cross-button to close the ad. The plugin is completely free and we do not ask for donations.

    A simple banner that only appears once in a lifetime is the only monetization of our own plugin, that we keep up to date and add new features for free.

    There are a lot of other plugins with mostly the same banners too.

    If you do not like it, we respect your perspective and rating. We do not earn money with the plugin, we only have work with it. Feel free to use any other plugin instead of ours if you are really annoyed by a one-time banner.

    Yes, many others work with ads, and thats more than acceptable – but only within the backend pages of that particular plugin, of which your plugin has many.

    Whats is a “no go” is to place ads anywhere else in WordPress. The function you used for that is meant for admin notices only, not for ads.

    Update: Please note that we’ve removed the banner from the dashboard and limited to the plugin.

    Please be fair and update your rating.
