Website Visitors

Like most website operators, GlitchTip collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. GlitchTip’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how GlitchTip’s visitors use its website. From time to time, GlitchTip may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

GlitchTip also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. GlitchTip does not use such information to identify its visitors, however, and does not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information, as described below.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to GlitchTip’s websites choose to interact with GlitchTip in ways that require GlitchTip to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that GlitchTip gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for an account at to provide an email address. Those who engage in transactions with GlitchTip are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, GlitchTip collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with GlitchTip. GlitchTip does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

We expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users.
