No Cookie (Consent Dialogue) For You

Dr. Oliver Eidel

Similar to what GitHub pulled off recently, I decided to remove all tracking cookies from OpenRegulatory.

Cookie consent dialogues suck. You display a popup to 100% of your users while delivering 0% additional value. But most websites still do it, because their owners like to wake up every morning and look at shiny Google Analytics charts - look! 20% more visitors yesterday!

However, hardly anyone has ever asked themselves: Which insights are we gaining from our tracking? Has any of those Google Analytics charts ever led to an impactful change to our website?

For me, that answer is no. But then again, I’m not a Google Analytics expert. And I also don’t plan to become one anytime soon.

So: No cookie (consent dialogue) for you.

On a slighty different note: You want to get your medical software certified under MDR but don't know where to start? No worries! That's why we built the Wizard. It's a self-guided video course which helps you create your documentation yourself. No prior knowledge required. You should check it out.

Or, if you're looking for the most awesome (in our opinion) eQMS software to manage your documentation, look no further. We've built Formwork, and it even has a free version!

If you're looking for human help, did you know that we also provide some limited consulting? It's limited because we are not many people. We guide startups from start to finish in their medical device compliance.

Congratulations! You read this far.

I'm a medical doctor, software engineer and regulatory dude. I'm also the founder of OpenRegulatory.

Through OpenRegulatory, I've helped 100+ companies with their medical device compliance. While it's also my job that we stay profitable, I try to dedicate a lot of my time towards writing free content like our articles and templates. Maybe that will make consulting unnecessary some day? :)

No QMS on this planet will save you from creating crappy software.
