Piwik instead of Google

Hi @ admin and/or mods!

Would it be an option to replace Google analytics with Piwik analytics?
Beeing tracked and analysed and maybe "sold" by them creates no comfortable feeling.

Thanks.

Is your question about this site?

I think there are browser plugins you can use if you want to block Google Analytics.

Don't know if these plugins are available just for Opera or Firefox.

In general: I don't have a problem "getting analysed" by the owner of a page. It's important for development of a page.
I have a problem with getting forwarded to outsiders where no one knows what is done with the data.
e.g. Google does not "collect" only on and from this domain...

Yes I know what you mean, but GA is on 80% of the websites, so if you don't like it your best option is to block it completely with a plugin. Otherwise you will have to ask thousands of sites you use to take it down, which is not going to happen in your lifetime (and I do wish you a long one ;)
