By doing so, they will be able to access your stats too, without having to create an account first. Panelbear is designed for visitor privacy. From data minimization principles to zero-configuration anonymization to enterprise-grade security. Panelbear only collects what is necessary, uses no tracking cookies, and does not sell personal data for advertising purposes.
