Today, noyb.eu sent over 500 draft complaints to companies who use unlawful cookie banners - making it the largest wave of complaints since the GDPR came into force.

Thats cool and all, but could be even better if they asked about their Matomo.

Awesome. Some of these Cookie banners are ridiculous. Instagram’s Cookie banner, for example, tells you to install a browser extension to block their Cookies, because apparently Facebook doesn’t have the technological expertise to not set tracking Cookies.

Google does the same if I remember correctly, they tell you to disable cookies in your browser’s settings.

Can you give a bit more details?

They have statistics tracking and “security software” (might just be fail2ban) on their site they disclose this in their privacy policy but aren’t very specific.

Matomo is self hosted though.

Honestly I have no issue with a bit of telemetry, it helps them a lot to know how much attention they’re getting and where.

As long as the data is not used to target marketing I’m mostly fine with it.
