data·yze monitors user activity in order to better understand how visitors are using the site. This helps us make website improvements & app enhancements, as well as identify potential bugs and error conditions.
This section describes the data that is sometimes collected and stored on our server, and for how long the data will be kept. The maximum period which data·yze stores non sensitive data is one year. Potentionally sentive data is deleted within 7 days.
data·yze collects and store standard traffic data such as URLs visited with corresponding timestamp and pseudo anonymized ipaddresses in order to better understand how users are using our site and our apps. Pseudo anonymization of the IP address is achieved by converting the last octet to 0. For example, Datayze's ip address is 188.8.131.52. Pseudo anonymization, it would be stored as 184.108.40.206. This allows us to get a general idea of the geographical region visitors may be coming from, but prevents us from being able to uniquely identify specific visitors. Pseudo anonymized ipaddresses are stored for a period of one year.
Some of data·yze's apps have a per user daily usage cap. For these apps we identify a user through their ipaddress. To enforce these caps, data·yze temporarily stores the full IP address of the user. The full IP address is automatically expunged from our server within seven days.
Many of the apps on data·yze allow for user input. Such data is only collected when it cannot be considered unique to a specific user and kept for up to a year.
Form input collected may include:
Some apps allow users to upload files for processing. The writing tools allow users to upload plain text document files rather than enter them manually type in the text, and the image apps allow users to upload images. In these instances files are cached in order to improve processing time. They are autmatocally expunged within 7 days, and may be deleted sooner.
This section describes the types of data that are never stored on our servers.
data·yze is not collecting the passages of text analyzed by the Writing Assistance Apps. Even if they don't contain sensitive information, writing samples can be thought of as unique digital fingerprints as it is unlikely for two individuals to write the exact same passage. Thus it is our policy not to store them in whole or in part. data·yze does, however, store the passage length, which is useful for analyzing performance of said apps. We may choose to store other meta information about the passages, such as character set encoding or language, in the future. This information is useful for ensuring the writing assistance apps are able to meet the needs of our users.
When a user fills out the contact form, our server sends an email with the user supplied content to the site administrator. Neither the message content, nor the email address (if supplied by the user) is stored on our server. Additionally, the user's pseudo anonymized ipaddress is not included in the email nor stored on the server.
data·yze does not store the content of pages crawled by the spider. data·yze does keep track of which pages are crawled, in order to enforce the per user url cap, as well as monitor for possible abuse.
