An Open-Source Google Analytics Alternative
Pirsch protects your visitors' privacy, is lightweight, cookie-free and easily integrated into any website or directly into your backend.
Big Tech Is a Privacy Nightmare
Google Analytics currently runs on millions of websites. Its dominant position in analytics and ad-tech allows Google to follow you around the web and to track your every move, targeting you and your users with personalized ads.
Giving away your visitors' personal information for free contradicts an ethical approach to data handling. With Pirsch, 100% of anything we collect belongs to you. It will never be sold or shared with third parties, you are always in charge.
For many web developers, adding Google Analytics to every web project is a force of habit without questioning if its complex possibilities will ever be used to their fullest. While its range of features lets you deep-dive into every aspect of your visitors' behavior, only a small percentage take full advantage of this.
Pirsch gives you insight into your website's performance in a similar way, aggregated into a meaningful dashboard and without identifying individual users.
A Simple Solution For Web Analytics
Our aspiration is to enable full transparency on how data is collected. We, therefore, develop the Pirsch core library in public on GitHub.
Faster Page Load
Google Analytics paired with the Google Tag Manager easily adds up to 50 KB to your website while our script is less than 1 KB in size.
Avoid Ad Blockers
By integrating Pirsch into your backend using our API or SDKs, you avoid adblockers without sacrificing privacy.
