Germany is leading Privacy issues awareness with open political discussions and decisions. In particular, internet businesses with servers in foreign countries are restricted in the way they collect Personally Identifiable Information (PII) from German visitors. Piwik has become a building block of the Free Internet and Open data movement. We believe that user privacy should always be protected, and more websites will make use of open source technologies to keep control over this sensitive data. Work is always ongoing to make Piwik better and faster. We also hope to keep developing our active community on the forums and organise more meetups in the future.

Germany is the most represented country in the Piwik community, and half of the core dev team is German. So we are excited to meet community members and meet other Piwik users in Munich!
