Google analytics tracking and IP anonymization

I have two questions:
1. How do I make your plugin to be legally ok to be used in Germany? Meaning, I need the plugin to send anonymized IP's to Google because the data will be stored in EU and must be anonymized.
2. I Need a Cookie opt-out option in case someone does not want to be tracked, per click the user should be able to opt out from tracking. How do I do that with your plugin?

    Hi Vlad,

    Hope you're doing well.

    About your question...

    1. How do I make your plugin to be legally ok to be used in Germany? Meaning, I need the plugin to send anonymized IP's to Google because the data will be stored in EU and must be anonymized.

    Enabling "IP Anonymization" option from Settings > Google Analytics panel will do this for you.

    2. I Need a Cookie opt-out option in case someone does not want to be tracked, per click the user should be able to opt out from tracking. How do I do that with your plugin?

    I'm afraid that GA+ doesn't have this option at this moment and something like that would require custom coding.
    If you need to customize this then you can post a job in our job board where you can hire a developer to assist further:
    http://premium.wpmudev.org/wpmu-jobs/
    Please note that, no WPMU official staff members are allowed to work in the job board.

    It does look like useful addition so I will move your thread to our features and feedback section and our developers can consider adding such option in future.

    Best regards,
    Predrag
