Is Matomo an illegal tracker?
No, it isn't, and anyone who says otherwise is lying! Either out of ignorance or to share harm through insecurity like bullies love to do.
Matomo Analytics and Matomo Tag Manager ensure full compliance to the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) and other privacy laws worldwide as described at https://matomo.org/faq/new-to-piwik/is-matomo-analytics-ccpa-compliant/ for CCPA.
Due to this legal basis, we have decided to install Matomo on our own server instead of relying on trackers such as Facebook or Google Analytics.
However, if you are one of those who like to spread insecurities by spreading lies about analytics software, you are just publicly showing a very low intelligence quotient and should probably go back to kindergarten. In any case, you have absolutely no business on the Internet!
