Privacy is something that everyone can appreciate and unfortunately far too many violate. We are especially vulnerable in this latter regard when we are exploring on the internet. For it is there where so much information about our behavior, electronic equipment, whereabouts, interests, inclinations, and time spent is collected without our knowledge. From this data entire stories can be created about our person that may or may not be true depending on who is collecting the data and creating the story.
In contrast, without data collection it is difficult for service providers to tailor their services to their customers wants and needs. Accordingly, please do not be surprised that a service provider would collect data about its users that they do not intentionally give. Indeed, the very nature of human communication demands that more information is exchanged than is ever intentionally given.
What is more, data collection is a two-way street! How, for example, can a service provider know that his freely offered information, instruction, or advice is not being used for criminal purposes? He cannot! In this light, if a user cannot trust the service provider whose data he collects, then why in the world would he be collecting the provider’s data in the first place?
In the end, it is not so much what data is exchanged and collected, but how this data is used.
Grammar Captive makes the assumption that most users do not mind that data about their person or behavior on a given site is collected, so long as it is stored securely and not used to their disbenefit. And, in good faith Grammar Captive makes no attempt to disguise the nature of the data that it collects, how this data is used, and the purpose of its use — namely, enhance the user’s experience and thus make Grammar Captive an attractive place for him to spend his time.
With the incorporation of Matomo into the Grammar Captive web application important decision had to be made about what data would be collected and what would not, and to this end Grammar Captive has updated its Iubenda legal advisory. Please visit the Grammar Captive mainpage and look for the subheading Legal/Privacy under the heading Other in the navigation bar.
