Just discovered on My Camino Forum account site under privacy that a monitoring web analytics system was used to monitor my content on this forum, removed it I hope.


Just thought I would mention it . Its in German as you can see.

I had a look at my privacy too and don’t quite understand.

You don’t need to do anything but you can opt out by unchecking the box. It will prevent the website from “aggregating and analyzing the actions you take here” (how often you visit, how long you stay, from where you log in etc). Doing so will protect your privacy to some extent, but it will also prevent the website owner “from learning from your actions and creating a better experience for you and other users.”.

If you want to opt out you need to do so on every device you use for accessing this website. The text also says that the analysing software is activated again when you clear website cookies in your browser (in case you ever clear cookies!).

It’s a nice touch to have this option to opt out. As I understand it, the website owner recently switched from Google’s analyzing software to the current one. The previous Google software didn’t allow to opt out as far as I can tell.

Thanks for the explanation @Kathar1na

Its good to have a choice although if @MickMac hadnt pointed it out., I would still be unaware.

This forum is an ‘English language ‘ site though., so I wonder if @ivar should update the German content.

I am not sure why this comes up in German... but as mentioned above. Un-check the box and "Save" and Matomo will not track your user on the site. I think it will still show you as a visitor, but it will not link the visit to your username.

By the way this is not shared with anyone (not google, not facebook,... no one but me can see this info).
