Matomo

Introduction

Matomo is an alternative to Google Analytics. It has a big emphasis on data protection and user privacy. Unlike Google Analytics, you can run your own Matomo analytics server (it's open source and free to use) so no data of your users is sent to another entity.
It also has an ecommerce section allowing you to do more than just track the pages visited, but also the sales, the path of your users leading to a sale, the products and categories most visited, etc. It's a great tool to optimize your online shop.
