At Geckoboard we’re committed to respecting your privacy. Below you’ll find information on our approach towards how we handle your personal data and the cookies we use, but as ever if you have any questions or feedback you can contact us on email@example.com.
This cookies policy applies to your use of:
- the website geckoboard.com, and
- the web and mobile application called ‘Geckoboard’,
(From here on out we’ll refer to both of these together as the “platform”).
What is a cookie?
A cookie is a small file of letters and numbers that are stored in your browser or the hard drive of your computer if you agree. Cookies contain information that is transferred to your computer’s hard drive about your usage of our website.
Cookies are useful in three different ways:
Providing basic functionality: Certain cookies are used to enable basic functions like recognising whether you’re logged into Geckoboard. Without these our platform would not function properly.
Analytics & statistics: These cookies help us understand how the users of our platform interact with it by reporting information on which pages they’re browsing, which elements of a page are being clicked, and so on. By analysing the data collected this way we are able to understand things like which pages of our website are the most popular, or how many users have created a dashboard in the last 24 hours so we can improve our service.
Marketing: Occasionally we use marketing tools or run advertising campaigns on third party platforms like Google Ads. When we do, cookies enable us to track specific behaviors and better measure the success of these campaigns.
