As part of our effort to build-in Privacy in our product and for upcoming GDPR compliance #12600 we would like to release a new privacy tool.

  • A raw data anonymisation tool where you will configure a date range, for example, "Remove Personal data fields for all Raw data older than 6 months"
  • The tool would remove or full anonymise a few key attributes such as:
    • IP Address
    • ~Visitor ID~
    • ~Fingerprint config ID~
    • Location data including lat/long
    • One or several custom dimensions, and/or custom variables
    • User ID

The new tool could be available in the existing Administration> Privacy. It would record a "Request to Remove personal data" which would be executed during the scheduled tasks.

FYI: Unsetting eg all idaction_event_category values may result in many more pageviews to be reported because the Actions-Archiver basically says where idaction_event_category is null and idaction_content_name is null => must be a page view. So when such data is removed, it may really result in wrong reporting data or even weird action types that aren't maybe unexpected because suddenly behind action.type might be an ID 10 instead of an expected 1 for the page view.

The data anonymisation tool is now available under Administration > Privacy > Anonymise data > Anonymize previously tracked raw data.

This is fixed in #12558 along with other GDPR improvements.
