EU Laws Compliance

September 2nd, 2012

We have done many background changes inside of the hitsniffer system and we are glad to announce that hitsniffer is compatible with IP anonymity law and UK cookie law now. These changes affect our users in the European Union, this applies to all EU countries.

According to the laws of certain countries, you are not allowed to log the full IP address of your visitors, so we have added an option in the account setting page for your tracking to be complaint with certain new EU Legislation. By enabling this option, tracker will log your site visitors IP addresses anonymously, which takes the last octet and changes it to 0. For example, becomes The system is not just hiding the ip address from you, we remove that number from the tail of the IP address to anonymize it. This complies with laws in places like Germany where it is technically illegal to log the full IP address of a visitor.

If your website has visitors fro EU countries then you must comply with the new legislation or your site could be potentially blocked or you could even be prosecuted for breaching this law.

EU ( UK ) Cookie Law requires that website owners who operate in the EU notify their visitors about cookies that they store about them, you may have seen a notification message in hitsniffer alerting you to this change in law and about our use of cookies. We have updated our Privacy Policy page to list all cookies we store on our website and within our tracking code section, so if you are using our tracking script and want to comply with Cookie Law, you can get a list of cookies that we use at this tracking script page here.

If you are unsure if these new EU laws apply to you then just do a quick search on Google and you will find how important this law change is for webmasters.

Label Your Visitors And Receive Notifications And Customized Reports

June 22nd, 2012

Hitsniffer’s advanced yet simple to use labeling system is live and it provides personalized reports on your visitors and you will be notified wherever you are, when there is a potential visitor looking at your pages. This is an excellent add on feature to enhance your website statistics and reporting.

We can consider it to be the best labeling system and here is why:

Once you define a condition filter for specified visitors, for example those who come from a specified city, those who looked at your purchase page or even more advanced filters like those who reach your page by searching a keyword on search engines and are using Google chrome as their browser. We then generate a customized statistics page for that label. You can then dig into it and see the list of visitors who triggered that label.

You can define a color for a label and make it easy to spot labeled visitors in your dashboard and report pages.  This is not where it ends, you can specify to receive a popup notification in the hitsniffer dashboard whenever a new visitor has triggered that label and you can choose a sound for that notification as well and for those of you who don’t want to keep dashboard open all the time, we offer Google Talk messenger method!

Yes, we will send a message to your Google Talk ID whenever a customer/visitor triggers your specified label. Google Talk is built-in into Android phones and tablets, it can also be installed on iPhone and iPad for free, so you’ll receive notification, no matter where you are.
