    Taking this opportunity to tell you about my open-source side project: I've built a very simple event-based analytics solution some time ago. You can simply host it yourself and track basic events. It's not possible to track any personal information, not even IP: https://github.com/shafy/fugu

    Fugu (code) provides simple, privacy-friendly, open source and self-hostable product analytics. While many tools claim to be Google Analytics alternatives, one of the things Fugu really gets right is properly doing "product analytics" – Going beyond simple view tracking to help you figure out how users are using your (web) software.

    If you track Personally Identifable Information, such as IP addresses or emails, yes. If you track completely anonymously, then no. Of course, this limits what kind of anylses you can do (e.g. cohort-based analyses will be impossible). But I would also wager that you don't really need that, especially if you're a small startup. You can have a look at my open-source, self-hostable Mixpanel alternative if you are interested: https://github.com/shafy/fugu

    Setting up solid required legal docs as you did is a good first step. In general, don't save data about your users. If you need to, minimize the amount. Don't use non-essential cookie, this allows comes with the benefit of not needing to show an annoying a cookie banner.

    As an alternative to Google Analytics, I recommend Plausible. If you need more event-based tracking (like Mixpanel), have a look at my app Fugu (https://github.com/shafy/fugu). It doesn't track unique users and is therefore compliant with GDPR. It's hosted in Germany, and you can self host it for free if you want (it's open-source).

    This is not very clear yet, but it might well be possible that using US companies as hosting providers might also become illegal under GDPR, even you use their EU data center. This is because the US government can access all US companies customer data, even if it's not hosted in the US. There are already precendences where this was ruled by a court. So, to be safe, I would also pick a EU provider, such as Hetzner, Clever Cloud or Scalingo.

    Fugu is a product analytics tool that focuses on privacy and simplicity. Think of it as an alternative to Mixpanel or amplitude. I've created it because I couldn't find a good event-based analytics tool that has these two requirements. Read more on https://fugu.lol
