Information Collected by Third Parties  

 

Cookies

 

We use Cookies on our website that collect information to allow us and third parties to understand your use of The Twenties Trader. The Twenties Trader uses cookies and other tracking technologies to provide our service. Cookies are not strictly necessary for the website to work, but it will provide you with a better browsing experience. If you choose to delete or block these cookies, some features of The Twenties Trader may not work as intended. 

 

Performance/Analytics and Research

 

Some technologies help provide performance data on how The Twenties Trader is functioning in order to make improvements to the platform. Data collected on site and app functionality and speed, how The Twenties Trader is used and detecting and gathering reporting on bugs helps improve The Twenties Trader and the services we offer. 

 

Preferences/Localisation

 

Cookies enable your personalized views and settings. Some cookies help us to provide localized experiences — for example, by making sure you see The Twenties Trader in your preferred language. 

 

Social Media Features/Widgets and Patreon

 

We use social media features, including the Facebook and Twitter button and widgets, such as the Share button or similar interactive mini-programs that run on The Twenties Trader. If you provide your social media information to us, we may use it to interact with you on these social networks. These features may collect your IP address and other personal data including which page you are visiting on our site and may set a cookie to enable the feature to function properly. Social media features and widgets are either hosted by a third party or hosted directly on The Twenties Trader.

Visitor Analytics App

 

We also use the Visitor Analytics App, which is a simple website analytics service which measures the traffic on The Twenties Trader and website visitors’ general details. We collect statistics such as which pages visitors visit and when, where they are approximately geographically located, where they land first or whether they are coming from a specific referral, to make our website visitors’ experience better. 

 

As a website operator using Visitor Analytics, we process information about our visitors’ device type and screen size/resolution, approximate location, browser, OS, IPs, page visits, bounce rates, conversions, conversion funnels, average sessions per visitor, average pages per session, average session duration, time spent on the website and preferably visited content on the website. All this data is pseudonymised and Visitor Analytics will not use the collected data to identify individual users or to match the data with additional information on an individual user. 

 

Visitor Analytics does not use cookies to collect this data. Instead, Visitor Analytics uses the so-called fingerprinting technology that does not require placing any cookies, files or technology on your device. Fingerprinting relies on your device’s technical attributes and combines them to identify your device as a unique device and allow for reliable analytics. 

 

Visitor Recordings is an additional feature to Visitor Analytics (described above) in the form of a simple website replay tool that records in statistics where The Twenties Trader website visitors scrolled to and what they clicked on on the website. We can see this information in playbacks and so called “heatmaps”. Collecting these statistics helps us to make our website more user-friendly as well as to reproduce and fix technical errors.

 

Basically, as a website operator using Visitor Recordings, we are using a snippet of tracking code to collect data about our visitors’ journey on our websites, which subpages they visit, what they clicked on, where they moved their mouse cursor to and where they scrolled. All this data is pseudonymised and Visitor Analytics will not use the collected data to identify individual users or to match it with additional information on an individual user. 

 

Google Analytics

 

Google Analytics mainly uses first-party cookies to report on visitor (aka. user) interactions on Google Analytics customers’ websites.
