The new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) laws will go in effect in may 2018.
Even though we are not a company in the EU we have most of our users in the EU and we took this opportunity to strengthen the privacy of Redistats for the benefit of everybody. In addition we make it more easier for websites that use Redistats to comply with GDPR.
What has changed?
I understand that many users liked to see the IP numbers of visitors and be able to click a link to get detailed information of this IP but in the aspect of the visitor most of them will not even be aware that this is a possibility and might object of this happening without their permission.
It is a good change and I hope other web analytics systems follow suit.
