Hi hunters πŸ‘‹ I’m Stefan, an organizer of the first three 😻 Product Hunt meetups in Switzerland. Today I’m launching my very first own product πŸŽ‰ πŸ™‚ Friendly Analytics is a privacy friendly Google Analytics alternative: πŸ“ˆ Based on Matomo, the world’s most popular professional open source analytics solution – used by NASA, the European Commission and the United Nations πŸ”’ Privacy friendly by not collecting any personal information (PII) and by not storing cookies, making it compliant with GDPR (EU), CCPA (California) and PECR (UK) – even without annoying cookie banners! πŸ‡¨πŸ‡­ Secure hosting in Switzerland, where the right to privacy is guaranteed by the constitution ❀️ I would love you to check it out! To make the decision easier for you, I am offering an exclusive πŸ€‘ -10% off lifetime discount on the "Pro" and "Business" plan for the PH community with coupon code PH2020, valid TODAY, March 18! I’m looking forward to your feedback!
Hello @stefanvetter greetings from VD! What are the differences with Matomo? Because the product is already "privacy-by-design made" in my opinion?
@phb Hi Paul-Henri! πŸ‘‹ Great question! You are right, Matomo is well prepared for a privacy friendly operation. However, it is not optimized for this by default after installation. For Friendly Analytics I have therefore set all settings for maximum privacy, according to the recommendations of the developers. In addition, I provide secure hosting in Switzerland, where privacy is protected by the constitution. So the added value of Friendly Analytics is the "package" of a privacy friendly configured Matomo with a secure hosting in Switzerland / Europe.
@stefanvetter OK much clearer. Thank you! You provide a full managed service approach, so you are, in a way, competing with Matomo Cloud offerings vs On-premise !
@phb That's right! Key differences between Matomo Cloud (provided by InnoCraft) and Friendly Analytics are:
  • Matomo Cloud is hosting all data at Amazon's AWS, so with just another US tech giant. Friendly Analytics is hosting all data on custom managed servers in Switzerland
  • Matomo Cloud is not optimized for privacy by default, you have to configure it all by yourself. Friendly Analytics already has everything set for you.
Excellent and good service
Awesome but waaay too expensive for your neighborhood shop.
