Sentoo follows a standard procedure of using log files. These files log visitors when they visit websites. All hosting companies do this and are a part of their hosting services’ analytics. The information collected by log files is non-personal and includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, Internet Service Provider (ISP), date and time stamp, referring/exit pages, and possibly the number of clicks. These are not linked to any personally identifiable information. The purpose of the data is to analyze trends, administer the site, track users' movements on the website, and gather demographic information.
When you use our service on the Sentoo platform
Sentoo provides its customers with a payment service through our Sentoo platform. At Sentoo, we are strongly committed to respecting your privacy and protecting your personal information when using our Sentoo platform. We use Plausible Analytics to track the usage of our Sentoo platform. Even though the purpose of Plausible Analytics is to track the usage of a platform, this can still be done without collecting any personal data or personally identifiable information (PII). Without using cookies and while respecting the privacy of our visitors. This is because, by using Plausible Analytics, all the site tracking is carried out anonymously and is non-personal. Moreover, cookies are not set, no personal data is collected, and all data is aggregate only. Below we will explain why we have opted for a privacy-friendly alternative to Google Analytics on our Sentoo platform:
- We minimize data collection
Plausible Analytics minimizes the data collection in general, as they only measure the most essential data points and nothing else. And all the metrics we do collect fit on one single page.
No personal data is collected
Plausible Analytics does not track, collect, or store any personal data or personally identifiable information. Plausible Analytics is even more privacy-friendly than options such as server logs.
There is no way to get any kind of personal data from Plausible Analytics, however, in our server logs, we can see all the IP addresses of our visitors when they visited our platform.
All data is in aggregate only
With Plausible Analytics, we aim to track overall trends in our website traffic, not track individual visitors. The privacy of our platform visitors is crucial to us. Therefore, with Plausible Analytics, we do not track any individual people, and all the data is in aggregate only.
No tracking across devices
Plausible Analytics does not track people across their devices. All data is isolated to a single device only, and there is no way to know whether the same person visits a site from more than one device.
No tracking across websites and apps
Plausible Analytics does not track people across websites and apps that they visit. Besides, all the data is isolated to a single website only, so there is no way to know what other websites someone visits.
All data is isolated to a single day
All the data is isolated to a single day only, so there is no way of knowing if the same person is coming back to a site on a different day.
No cookies and other persistent identifiers
This makes us compliant with the different cookie laws and privacy regulations such as GDPR and PECR. As a result of not using cookies on our platform, we do not need to obtain consent from our visitors to store and retrieve data from their devices
Your data is not sent to, shared with, or sold to any third parties
Sentoo does not share, sell, or send your platform data to any advertising companies or any other third parties in general. Our platform is not monetized, mined, and harvested for personal behavior trends. That is just not our business model.
