When you use the Piwik JavaScript Tracker Piwik will by default track the following information:

  • User IP address (see also: IP anonymisation)
  • Date and time of the request
  • Title of the page being viewed (Page Title)
  • URL of the page being viewed (Page URL)
  • URL of the page that was viewed prior to the current page (Referrer URL)
  • Screen resolution being used
  • Time in local user’s timezone
  • Files that were clicked and downloaded (Download)
  • Links to an outside domain that were clicked (Outlink)
  • Time it takes for pages to generated (Page speed)
  • Location of the user: country, region, city (Geolocation)
  • Language of the browser being used (Accept-Language)
  • User Agent of the browser being used (User-Agent)

From the User-Agent, we use the Universal Device Detection library to detect the browser, operating system, device used (desktop, tablet, mobile, tv, cars, console, etc.), brand and model.

Some information is also stored in first party cookies and then collected by Piwik:

  • Random unique User ID
  • Time of the first visit for this user
  • Time of the previous visit for this user
  • Number of visits for this user
