Tracking on Crowdin

Do Not Track” is a privacy preference you can set in your browser if you do not want online services — specifically ad networks — to collect and share certain kinds of information about your online activity from third party tracking services. Crowdin does not currently respond differently to an individual browser’s Do Not Track setting. If you would like to set your browser to signal that you would not like to be tracked, please check your browser’s documentation for how to enable that signal. There are also good applications that block online tracking, such as Privacy Badger.

We do not track your online browsing activity on other online services over time and we do not host third-party advertising on Crowdin that might track your activity on our site. We do have agreements with certain vendors, such as analytics providers, who help us track visitors’ movements on certain pages on our site. Only our vendors, who are collecting data on our behalf, may collect data on our pages, and we have signed data protection agreements with every vendor who collects this data on our behalf. We use the data we receive from these vendors to better understand our visitors’ interests, to understand our website’s performance, and to improve our content. Any analytics vendor will be listed in our Subprocessor List above.

Google Analytics

We use Google Analytics as a third party analytics service, but we don’t use it for advertising purposes. We use Google Analytics to collect information about how our website performs and how our users, in general, navigate through and use Crowdin. This helps us evaluate our users’ use of Crowdin; compile statistical reports on activity; and improve our content and website performance. Google provides further information about its own privacy practices and offers a browser add-on to opt out of Google Analytics tracking.
