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 software which helps you create your documentation yourself, for only 149€ / month. No prior knowledge required. You should check it out.

Or, if you're looking for some human help, did you know that we also provide consulting, often guiding startups from start to finish in their medical device compliance?

And there's so much more: If you're looking for the best QMS software ever, look no further. We've built Formwork, and it's free!

Congratulations! You read this far.

I'm a medical doctor, software engineer and regulatory dude. I've helped 50+ companies with their medical device compliance. I mainly work as a regulatory consultant, but my goal is to make consulting unnecessary by publishing all of our articles and templates for free :)
