There is a new Piwki Do Not Track plugin, see ticket:258#comment:18

This needs installing and testing on the dev piwik site, https://piwik.transitionnetwork.org/ and then documenting and applying to the live https://stats.transitionnetwork.org/ Piwik site.

  • Add Hours to Ticket changed from 0.0 to 0.25
  • Total Hours changed from 0.0 to 0.25

The dev server version of Piwik didn't have the plugin installed, so installing it using svn:

cd /web/piwik.transitionnetwork.org/piwik/plugins
svn co http://dev.piwik.org/svn/trunk/plugins/DoNotTrack/

Then this plugin was enabled in the web admin interface.

On the live server the last version was installed using a .zip file, this was switched to use the svn version:

cd /web/stats.transitionnetwork.org/piwik/plugins
mv DoNotTrack .DoNotTrack.bak; svn co http://dev.piwik.org/svn/trunk/plugins/DoNotTrack/
A    DoNotTrack/DoNotTrack.php
Checked out revision 6408.

Testing the dev site a cookie is served up by Piwik to clients even when they send a Do Not Track HTTP header.

I'll do some more on this tomorrow.

  • Add Hours to Ticket changed from 0.0 to 0.5
  • Status changed from new to closed
  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Total Hours changed from 0.25 to 0.75

I have done some testing on the dev server and the live server looking at all the HTTP headers and if you are using a browser which supports the Do Not Track header then Piwik won't set a cookie and won't track you.

In addition if you don't login then Drupal on dev and live server won't set a cookie.

I'm now closing this ticket.
