Hotjar Heatmapping

We use a program called Hotjar to better learn how you use our website. This part of the policy refers to how Hotjar works and what data it collects.

For the purposes of the services that Hotjar provides to us, Hotjar acts as Data Processor and solely processes all personal data in accordance with the instructions received from TMS. This includes how Hotjar collects information from your browser and device when you access our website

The following information may be collected related to your device and browser:

  • device's IP address (captured and stored in an anonymized format as described in our Technical Information);
  • device screen resolution;
  • device type (unique device identifiers), operating system, and browser type;
  • geographic location (country only);
  • preferred language used to display the Hotjar Enabled Site.

User interactions

  • Mouse events (movements, location and clicks)
  • Keypresses

Log data

For a sampling of visitors, Hotjar servers automatically record information which is collected from our website. This data includes:

  • referring domain;
  • pages visited;
  • geographic location (country only);
  • preferred language used to display the webpage;
  • date and time when website pages were accessed;

We may from time to time use Hotjar to record your usage of our website. When collecting data with Recordings, Hotjar automatically suppresses keystroke data on password fields, as well as when we detect a credit card number being entered into an input field. We also offer the ability to manually suppress data on specific input fields or on-page text containing email addresses/numbers. In both cases, the data is suppressed client-side, the visitor’s browser, which means it never reaches our servers.

Hotjar also uses cookies to determine if someone has opted out of being tracked by Hotjar services.
