We take data protection very seriously and take the following steps to verify that the data we do collect is safe and anonymous:
- We perform IP address anonymization by zeroing-out the last 2 octets of an IP address. For example: 192.168.100.100 becomes 192.168.000.000
- We do not use unique event fingerprinting
- We transmit all analytics data collected from Ecosia services to our encrypted analytics database over an SSL-secured connection
- We store all analytics data in an encrypted database
We do not, and never will, share this analytics data with any third party, period.
