General Internet User Privacy for our services
Histats is a service of intangible nature which is known as Software as a Service, SaaS.
The aim of this service is to measure the audience of Internet.
Histats provides their customers with an IT solution via the Internet which enables them
to collect statistical audience data on online mediums that is then reproduced in an
aggregated and anonymous format on a web interface that only the Histats customer
has access to. With this data, Histats customers can then improve the ergonomics of their own sites,
as well as improving the range and quality of the products and services that they have to
offer. The use of SaaS has also been adopted by the general management and the marketing,
editorial or technical teams of the different companies which use our products.
Histats reminds its customers that they must also carry out the required legal formalities
and where applicable declare, with the relevant authorities, the fact that they are
engaging in personal data processing concerning the data that is collected by Histats,
and for which they are the proprietors.
Data collected by Histats
Whenever an Internet user visits a medium that is audited by our SaaS, Histats will collect statistical
data about the visit. This data provides information on an Internet user’s connection to
a particular website, for example information that relates to the type of browser
that is used, the number of page views, the exact path that an Internet user has taken
on a site, the amount of time spent on a page, site, or information on the
filling or abandonment of a shopping cart etc.
No primary personal information such as first name, surname,
telephone number, email address, etc, is collected at our own
initiative by any of the Histats solutions.
Cookie and Unique Visitor:
A "cookie" is a text file which saves information relating to an Internet users
browsing on the Internet. Cookies are controlled by the web browser of an Internet user’s computer.
As far as Internet users are concerned, "cookies" are the best method which can
that Internet users avoid being bombarded with the same advertising messages
and questions on certain sites, and they also save time on other sites,
especially on sites where it is necessary to enter a login or password.
As far as Histats is concerned "cookies" are used to carry out
relevant and detailed statistical research. Thanks to the use of "cookies" it becomes possible to refine
each time they visit their site (i.e. to find out that it is the same visitor without knowing who they are).
These "cookies" store a unique alphanumeric ID only, relating to the device used by an Internet user,
and under no circumstances is this information used to collect nominative information on the visitors.
All of the results which are obtained are then compiled, and are completely anonymous.
The results provide information on the browsing and behaviour of Internet users on the websites
of Histats customers, information such as: the number of visitors, the number of visits, the number of
page views and other information that is necessary for the effective measurement of Internet user interests.
With these results it is then possible to improve the ergonomics and content of such websites.
Lastly, the Histats Service can use either the cookie known as "first party"
(issued by the URL of the website tracked by AT Internet) or the cookie known as "third party"
(issued by a URL belonging to Histats: .histats.com ) depending on the needs of our customer.
In both cases, the reason for using the cookie remains the same as the reasoning explained above
and no personal data is collected via these cookies.
IP and geolocation:
During the data-collection and data-processing processes, Histats(just like any other company
that exists in the fields of web analytics and web marketing) uses an Internet user’s IP address
for the only purpose of geolocating the country and the city of their device , in order
to identify the location in which an Internet user connects to a particular website
( level of precision: region or city in some countries ). In order to ensure better privacy protection, Histats
anonymize all ip addresses: the last three digits of the IPv4 are deleted immediately, and last 64 bits on IPv6
Informing Internet users of the audience measurement service
Histats customers commit to informing Internet users who visit their sites of the existence
of the data collection process that is carried out by Histats. Customers are also committed to informing
such users of their access rights, right to reply, right to veto, as well as of the right to remove their personal data.
For example, Histats customers can publish the following message on their site: "In order to provide our visitors
with a better service, and thanks to the use of Histats solutions, we are measuring the number of page views,
the number of visits, the different actions performed by visitors on our site,
and the number of times visitors return to our site. If you do not wish to be audited on our site,
please go to the following Histats web page that provides further information on respecting private data
and follow the procedure that is available there". In addition to this Histats customers can also include
an opt-out via iframe on their own internet website.
Children's Online Privacy
We do not do business with any person under the age of 18 and anyone
using our Services must be at least 18 years of age. If we become aware
that a person under the age of 18 has provided us with Personal
