Visitor Tracking


What we Collect

Visits to our customers' sites are reported to our cloud servers. Each visitor is identified using a random number that is generated and kept in local storage within the browser. We collect generalized location information (city, region, country) in order to report on engagement by geography for publishers. We do not store specific IP addresses for visitors. We collect information about the web pages visited, the amount of time spent on each page, the referring website, and the links clicked on the page.

How we Use the Information

We use this information solely for the purpose of providing our service to a publisher based on visitors to their own site(s). This includes engagement analytics and contextual content recommendations that we offer to each visitor. We use publisher email addresses to send occasional messages about their service. We never share this information in any form other than aggregated form with the publisher of the site.


Publisher Tracking


What we Collect

For our customers, we collect name, website information, email address, and payment methods.

We authenticate customers using either Google OAuth ("google sign-in") or via conventional email authentication. Once authenticated, we use a browser cookie to maintain this identity between sessions.

How we Use the Information

We do not use this identification information for any purpose other than providing secure access to our services along with appropriate invoicing and payments. We do not share this with any third party except Stripe who we use to provide our invoicing and payment services and Intuit who provides our QuickBook accounting services.


GDPR

We do not claim to be compliant with the General Data Protection Regulation. However, we strive to conform to all of the major requirements of this regulation.

For publishers who wish to maintain GDPR compliance, we do not collect any data about visitors that includes personal information and we do not use cookies to track their visits.
