Centre, 3, Elia Zammit Street, St Julians STJ 1000, Malta, Europe
Tel.: +1 (855) 464-6788).
This tool is able to track movements on various websites on which Hotjar is installed, and can then be traced (via so-called heatmaps). For example, it tracks how far users scroll, which buttons users click,
and how often. Further, it is also possible to obtain feedback directly from website users, via this tool. This enables us to gain valuable information to make our websites even faster and more
PERFORMANCE ONE pays particular attention to protecting your personal data when using this tool.
So, we can only track which buttons are clicked, the history of the mouse, how far is scrolled, the screen size of the device, device type, the browser information, geographical location (only the country), and the preferred language for displaying our website. Areas of the websites in which your personal data or that of third parties are displayed are automatically hidden by Hotjar, thereby making them non-traceable at any time.
Hotjar offers every user the option of preventing the Hotjar tool from being activated, with the help of a »Do Not Track« header, ensuring that no data pertaining to the online activity on the respective website is recorded. This is a setting that all commonly-used browsers support in their current versions. Your browser consequently sends a request to Hotjar to deactivate the tracking action for that specific user. If you are active on the PERFORMANCE ONE website via different browsers/computers, you must set up the »Do Not Track« header for each of these browsers/computers, separately.
