User Experience and Statistics

We use our own technology (including soft authentication systems, storage and messaging engines, databases and big data repositories) to perform statistical evaluations using pseudonymized user profiles. We do this to optimize your experience with our products and provide relevant content and advertisements. If you utilize multiple email addresses to access your Mupixa Account, we may tie those emails to one profile. We may combine information we gather about your use of one product or service with your use of another product or service. We also use the information we collect to offer you content, search results and advertisements that will be of most interest to you. We believe more relevant advertising provides a better Internet experience. This is also how we support our business while still providing certain products or services to you free of charge. As part of this process, we may collect information about how you use and interact with the advertisements that we offer. We may also use information about how you use our products and services across various Devices. Based on this Device-specific information (for example, the hardware model, operating system, version, device) and the unique application number assigned to some of our products and services, we may be able to compile a personal profile about you. When you log in and access your Account or our products, we may automatically collect and store certain information. For example, details of how you use our products, where your computer is routing from, your browser type and version, and Cookies that may identify your browser and/or Account. By reviewing and accepting this privacy policy, you understand and agree that we may combine non-Personal Data or pseudonymized data obtained via our proprietary soft authentication systems with Personal Data obtained when you sign up for an Mupixa Account. We do not share this combined data with third parties.In addition to our own proprietary technology, we use the following third-party analytics tools to better understand your interaction with our website and use of our products/services. Our ultimate goal is to create a more user-friendly experience for you:

Google Analytics

We use Google Analytics, a web analysis service from Google, Inc. ("Google"). Google Analytics uses Cookies to make it possible to analyze your use of our website. Information about your use of our website the Cookie generates is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and saved there. However, before this happens, Google shortens and anonymizes your IP address (Google's anonymizeIp process) if located within a member state of the European Union or in other contracting member states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. The entire IP address is transferred to a Google server in the USA and saved there only in exceptional cases. This anonymization ensures that your IP address cannot be traced back to you. Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website in order to compile reports about website activities for Mupixa and provide additional services associated with website and Internet usage. Google can transfer this information to third parties, where appropriate, if legally mandated or if Google contracts with third parties to process such data. Google will not associate your IP address with other Google data. By using our website, you expressly consent to Google’s collection and storage of your data in the manner and for the purposes described above. You also have the option to prevent Google from acquiring and processing data generated by Cookies and data related to your use of our website (including your IP address) by downloading and installing a Google-provided browser plugin. More information about Google Analytics can be found here.

Hotjar

We use Hotjar (a web analysis service from Hotjar Limited) in order to better understand our users’ needs and to optimize this service and experience. Hotjar is a technology service that helps us better understand our users’ experience (e.g. how much time they spend on which pages, which links they choose to click, what users do and don’t like, etc.) and this enables us to build and maintain our service with user feedback. Hotjar uses cookies and other technologies to collect data on our users’ behavior and their devices. This includes a device's IP address (processed during your session and stored in a de-identified form), device screen size, device type (unique device identifiers), browser information, geographic location (country only), and the preferred language used to display our website. Hotjar stores this information on our behalf in a pseudonymized user profile. Hotjar is contractually forbidden to sell any of the data collected on our behalf. For further details, please see the ‘about Hotjar’ section of Hotjar's webpage.

Sharing information with third parties

Mupixa does not forward or sell Personal Data to third parties. If we work with advertising and publishing partners, we will only share non-Personal Data as fully explained below.

However, we may engage other companies to process data on our behalf. For example, we work together with PayPal (https://paypal.com) to provide you with a convenient way to order, pay for our SaaS. With any such service sub-processors, we will only share Personal Data if we have an appropriate data processing agreement in place. We will only transfer the minimum amount of Personal Data we need in order for the data processing to occur. Such companies must adhere strictly to data protection legislation. They must also treat your Personal Data confidentially and use it only for providing us the data processing services. They must not use your Personal Data for their own business purposes. As we are a global corporation, we may store and process your personal information on a server outside the country where you live.

If we comply with privacy laws, we may share non-Personal Data with our advertising and publishing partners. Again, we will never share or sell Personal Data. This may allow our partners to tailor advertisements to you. We require these partners to comply with applicable laws and this privacy policy. However, these partners may still collect data if you visit a website by clicking on an advertisement. The way they collect data may include placing Cookies on your browser. They may also review the number of times you viewed an advertisement. The partners can track your search queries, where your computer is routing from and your browser type and version. We do not have control over the types of information such partners collect and how they will, ultimately, use it. We strongly recommend that you review any partner’s privacy policy before clicking on a particular advertisement. A partner may request that you provide Personal Data in order to access a certain website. In this case, your visit to the website will be governed by the partner’s own privacy policy. Again, we recommend that you review any partner’s privacy policy before providing such partner with any Personal Data. Finally, Mupixa may disclose your Personal Data if we are required by law to provide it to governmental agencies, courts or other authorities.
