Google Analytics declared illegal in EU?

Oh boy. Ooooh boooooy.

Maybe still in time for TWIG, @Leo ?

Wait a sec, this is slightly old news I did not catch.

“To radically simplify: EU law says European levels of protection must travel with data. While US law says ‘we’re taking your data; we’re not telling you what we’re doing; and you can’t do anything about it anyway, sucker!’.”

Reminds me a bit of the Leistungsschutzrecht debate of two weeks ago. :wink:

Google analytics isn’t illegal, but binding it into your website in non anonymous mode is. If the site sends PII to Google, such as the visitors IP address or any information about the user collected in the site, that is illegal.
