We use Hotjar and Google Analytics in order to optimise our site and user 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’ behaviour and their devices (in particular device IP addresses (captured and stored only in anonymised form), device screen size, device type (unique device identifiers), browser information, geographic location (country only), preferred language used to display our site). Hotjar stores this information in a pseudonymised user profile. Neither Hotjar nor we will ever use this information to identify individual users or to match it with further data on an individual user.

We also use MailChimp to monitor and improve the effectiveness of our marketing communications, which include monitoring or tracking responses and engagement. Mailchimp is an email marketing service which uses Google Analytics to track how many people open our emails and which features they click on. This information enables us to make our marketing campaigns more effective and suitable to our customers.
