Privacy Policy

We here at DevCollaborative commit to protecting the privacy and accuracy of confidential information to the greatest extent possible.

In particular, we do not share or sell personal information collected on our web servers.

Google Analytics

We run Google Analytics on our site to measure the popularity of our blog posts and other content.

In doing so, we collect the following: 

  • Time of visit, pages visited, and time spent on each page of the webpages
  • Referring site details (such as the URI you came through to arrive at our site)
  • Type of web browser
  • Type of operating system (OS)
  • JavaScript support, screen resolution, and screen color processing ability
  • Network location and IP address.

That information is sent to Google, but neither them nor us sell or share that with anyone else.

Hotjar

We use Hotjar to better understand what links people hover and click on and how far down the page they scroll.

In doing so, we collect the following:

  • Cursor movement on each page
  • IP address (processed during your session and stored in a de-identified form)
  • Device screen size
  • Device type
  • Browser information
  • Geographic location (country only)
  • Preferred language

 

Hotjar stores this information on our behalf in a pseudonymized user profile. Hotjar is contractually forbidden to sell any of the data collected on our behalf.

For further details, please see the ‘About Hotjar’ section of Hotjar’s support site.

Matomo Analytics

We are also running Matomo Analytics for the same reason. Running two analytics tools at once is admittedly excessive. We're testing out Matomo because it's open-source and more privacy-focused than Google. 

We collect the same information with Matomo, 

  • Time of visit, pages visited, and time spent on each page of the webpages
  • Referring site details (such as the URI you user came through to arrive at our site)
  • Type of web browser
  • Type of operating system (OS)
  • JavaScript support, screen resolution, and screen color processing ability
  • Network location and IP address.

That information is sent to Matomo but neither them nor us sell or share that with anyone else.

Contact Form

When you contact us through our contact form we collect your email address and optionally your name.  

We only use this information to reply to you thoughtfully.

Privacy Statement Revisions

This Privacy Statement was last revised on November 3, 2021. It doesn't change often, but it never hurts to check it now and then.
If we make a significant change to our Privacy Statement, we will post a notice on the homepage of our web site for a period of time after the change is made. 

Questions or Concerns?

If you have any questions or concerns about this Privacy Policy contact us and we'd be happy to address any concerns you have. We take privacy seriously and have even blogged about it.
