Personal Information We Collect
When you visit the Site, we automatically collect certain information about your device, including information about your web browser, IP address, time zone, and some of the cookies that are installed on your device. Additionally, as you browse the Site, we collect information about the individual web pages or products that you view, what websites or search terms referred you to the Site, and information about how you interact with the Site. We refer to this automatically-collected information as “Device Information.”
We collect Device Information using the following technologies:
- “Cookies” are data files that are placed on your device or computer and often include an anonymous unique identifier. For more information about cookies, and how to disable cookies, visit http://www.allaboutcookies.org.
- “Log files” track actions occurring on the Site, and collect data including your IP address, browser type, Internet service provider, referring/exit pages, and date/time stamps.
- “Web beacons”, “tags”, and “pixels” are electronic files used to record information about how you browse the Site.
Additionally when you make a purchase or attempt to make a purchase through the Site, we collect certain information from you, including your name, billing address, payment information, and email address. We refer to this information as “Order Information.”
When you install a Bouncingsprout Studio plugin, we track some information about your website environment. We refer to this information as “Environment Information”.
The only sensitive data we store is the admin name and email. We do not track or store any personal or business critical data from you or your site users.
We keep track of the admin email address simply to get in touch regarding potential security updates, feature announcements, promotions, etc.
Tracking data is automatically sent to our servers once you activate your licence key and then every 24 hours thenceforth (for as long as the plugin is active).
The following Environment Information is tracked:
- Bouncingsprout Studio plugin state (active, inactive, uninstalled)
- Bouncingsprout Studio plugin version
- Site URL
- WordPress admin name
- WordPress admin email
- WordPress locale (country + language)
- WordPress version
- PHP version
- MySql version
- List of installed plugins
- List of installed themes
This Environment Information is tracked with the intention of making our products better and more secure.
We do that by tracking how our users are using the plugin, learning why they abandon it, which environments we need to continue supporting, etc.
Those valuable data points are key to making data-driven decisions and lead to better user experience, new features, better documentation and other good things.
