Advice on Clicky, Google Analytics, and Piwik

I'm looking to switch from Google Analytics to other more privacy compliant analytics tools. My ideal tool would have the basics (visits, pageviews, duration, rebound rate, source/medium) and more: breakdown by page, conversion goals, campaigns set-up... But I'm a bit confused by the different choices, and I would greatly appreciate any feedback ;)

This is probably one of the easiest tools to customize to your needs. It's open source so you can host your own instance of it making it very affordable and it has plenty of privacy tools including honoring do not track requests on a server side basis so no additional coding necessary and you can easily tell it to anonymity guest ip addresses so there would be no way of a breach compromising the integrity of your privacy goals

It is lightwaith but is not having the Google Analytics features or Matomo. You ca try it and see if it jas what you need, till now I am happy.

We have integrated Panelbear on our Website, rather than Google Analytics, because it is way more respecting of the User's Privacy. Whilst Google Analytics gives us in-depth information on virtually everything, we don't even need that much. Panelbear keeps it simple and in addition to that, displays the data well structured in a simple and intuitive dashboard
