Information Collected

We use common tracking methods to gather analytics and data on people who we reach with this site.

Obviously, if you enter any information in (e.g., leave a comment or subscribe to the newsletter), we’ll have that info.

We also use Clicky analytics to get visitor tracking data which means we’ll get information such as the following:

  • URL & Title of pages viewed
  • URL & Title of any links that are clicked on pages viewed
  • Referrer
  • User agent
  • Browser language
  • Screen resolution
  • x/y coordinates of mouse events
  • Unique ID tracking cookie (“UID”)Most privacy laws consider this to be Personal Data, even though it is randomly generated and does not identify who you are or reveal anything else about you. Its sole purpose is to more accurately track unique visitors.
  • IP address (“IP”)IPs are anonymized by default, but Customers can disable this for security/fraud purposes, in which case they are considered Personal Data.
  • Custom dataThis feature can be used by a site to attach additional data to a visitor, potentially including Personal Data such as a name or email address, but it is against our Terms to log Personal Data using this feature without disclosure or (depending on “legitimate interest”) consent. Customers are responsible for obtaining content from End Users, if necessary. This feature requires a small amount of configuration and coding by Customers, so only a small percentage of Customers use it.
