Website Data Collection

Matomo vs. Google Analytics

Google Analytics

The trade off with using a free tool like Google Analytics is that they own your data. This means that Google can use your data for their own purposes, like targeted advertising. Which is also a major threat to privacy.


We use Matomo to collect data to help make Matomo solves this problem by giving us 100% data ownership. The web analytics data we collect from you is monitored by OHSC and OHSC alone. No external parties are looking in. Gain peace of mind knowing you’re in complete control of your data and is only being used for OHSC’s web analytics purposes to provide you an improved user experience while browsing our site. Data ownership gives us the power to protect privacy and build trust with our users.
