The free libre open source analytics software Matomo (formerly known as Piwik) is now on the fediverse:
They also have a website:
The software costs nothing if you self-host, and they also offer a paid hosted option for people who prefer it.
Unlike Google Analytics, Matomo's data stays entirely on the site that uses it. No one else has access to it, so there's no way for it to be aggregated across many sites.
So the hosted version has access to the analytics data of all the visitors of all the sites using the hosted version, and can track people exactly like Google? (but on a much more limited subset of websites, obviously)
Hey Mathieu we love hearing from new community members so we're glad you're posing these important questions. We believe in 100% data ownership for each user. So the main protection our users get is the data processing agreement (https://www.innocraft.cloud/dpa) and terms of services (https://www.innocraft.cloud/terms). Both give users assurance that data belongs to them and that we can't do anything with it 😉
I read both those documents and didn't see anything that guarantees you won't sell the data or otherwise profit from it.
I also didn't see anything about not aggregating data from a visitor across multiple websites using your hosted solution.
Did I miss it?
Re: aggregating data. If you use our hosting solutions you get to aggregate the data on your own account. However, since you have 100% control over what you choose to do with that data. We don't have rights to do anything with it so we can't aggregate data across accounts. You can track multiple websites in one account and choose to aggregate the data yourself, but it's not something we will do for you. Hope that addresses your concerns :)
