The use of Google Analytics in KDE Store

I wonder why KDE Store uses Google Analytics when user privacy is one of the main KDE priorities.
Is it because the store is hosted on the platform? Something to do with Pling?

Correct, is actually not run by KDE; it’s basically a skinned redirect to the data you can see at So you’d have to ask them.

The situation is fairly confusing at the moment since using a subdomain of definitely implies that this is officially controlled by KDE and using KDE infrastructure, when in fact neither is true.


I have sent an email to about the use of google analytics on their “Libre Cloud Service” pling platform :slight_smile:
