Kindmetrics is made to collect analysis, but Kindmetrics can do this without collecting personal data or personally identifiable information (PII) on the user’s visitors.
Data we collect
Even if we try to collect as little as possible, we have to collect some to give everyone a good service. Kindmetrics split it up in 2 different chapters to make it extra clear.
We gather only this information about you as a user of Kindmetrics:
- email (sent through Mailjet)
- payment information (Paddle)
We do not save the user’s information like IP-addresses and unique device identifiers. We save this without any personal information, in a one-way hash.
We do not use or store information about the user’s location except for the country of origin (we do not save IP-address or anything else than country.)
We do not log any personal data at all in our logs. The logs only look like this:
We use a managed load balancer from Digitalocean in Frankfurt, which might log the traffic.
We collect some to be able to present users some analytics of their visitors.
We collect page views, referrers, paths, user agents (browser, OS, device), and IP address.
We collect and save referrer
The referrer is the URL where the user came from to user’s site. We use it so the user can see from which website is linked to the user’s website. An example website here could be blogs, news. The user can also see the user that came directly to the website by the user’s domain. Later this will be changed to
We receive and save Page url
We receive but DO NOT save user-agents
We get the user-agent to calculate browser name, device type, and operative system. We also use it for our one-way hash for making our unique identifier for a user. After we all have done this, we will throw it away.
We receive and save browser
We use the
user-agent string from the browser to determine which browser every visitor uses.
We receive and save device
This is being parsed from the
user-agent string, which the web browser sent in every request.
We receive and save operative system
This is being parsed from the
user-agent string as well, which the web browser sent in every request.
We receive and save country
We use public files with a list of countries for each IP-address to map which country an IP-address is based. We can NOT see cities, states, or something else.
We receive but DO NOT save IP-addresses
We get the IP address when tracking the user; we then use it for unique one-way hashing to find unique visitors and get a country.
After this is done, we throw the IP-address away and do not save it at all.
Web analytics and GDPR, CCPA and other privacy regulations
We do not save the IP-address in an exact format. We use the IP address for:
- Get country
- Create a unique one way hash
After that, we throw the IP address away. We cannot get the IP. Our unique hash for users are very similar to other privacy analytics services; it is based on four things
(domain + IP address + browser + Date)
We have minimal amount of third parties processors:
- Digitalocean - VPS cloud hosting - office in USA (servers are in Germany)
- Mailjet - Email service - France
- faviconkit - Get Favicons for referrers - Malta
- Inleed - We host our landing page on Inleed - Sweden
- Bunnycdn - Our CDN for our static landing page - EU
- Paddle - payment processor - EU and UK
We use no cdn on our app subdomain.
We also do not send calls to third parties to get info about the user. The data that comes to our system stays there.
