Here on the interweb, lots of things that aren’t normal in the realworld are – we don’t blink an eye at a cat playing a xylophone for example. We post every waking thought (and some sleeping ones too!) on social media for all the world to see.
Show me the cat!
That was fun! OK, do carry on…
Another thing that’s really common is using tools to understand what visitors do when they’re browsing a website. Some companies go overboard with this and it sucks.
Is it really that dangerous?
Not necessarily, but it has the potential to become so. By collecting a lot of data on you, companies can make you propositions based on what they think is your personality – send you spam or, if they’re really bad actors, even worse. That said, it’s not all bad and the majority of sites use your data for good.
Sprygg is collecting my data?
Yes, we have to. And, being truly transparent about it, here’s the list;
When you’re browsing Sprygg.io, we save: your IP address, the device you’re using, your timezone, the pages on our site you’ve visited, and similar purely technical things.
Why do you do that?
In order to give you a better experience we need to make our site look and work great on your phone, pad or computer.
When you send us a message, be it showing interest in what Sprygg is doing or to chat, we have to save the data you send.
It is, but from 14.04.2016 Sprygg has to put it in writing. The regulation is called GDPR and you can read about it here.
(Since in cyberspace we’re all equal, we’re showing you this regardless of your geolocation).
And the cookies?
Oh, right. That’s an easy one. Yes, Sprygg does put a few of those tiny files containing data related to your use of the website on your device to save some preferences while you scroll through.
To be honest, we didn’t think you’d read this far. Thanks for making the effort. We hope you’re now reassured we’ve your best interests in mind.
However, if you feel we’ve done something wrong, please send us an e-mail and we’ll fix it immediately.
But if that doesn’t work for you, please do contact your data protection agency.
