Don't want to be tracked? Opt-out!


At HeatMap, Inc. we take your privacy very seriously. Access to your data is limited to the website owners and is collected in a way to protect you and your information. Our opt-out options allow you to prevent data tracking when you navigate on:

  • HeatMap, Inc. own and operated web sites (heatmap.me and heatmap.it)
  • HeatMap, Inc. clients' web sites – sites on which HeatMap, Inc. collects statistical data

We respect the "Do Not Track" setting of your browser. All major Internet browsers now let you specify "Do Not Track" that sends a signal to the websites you visit, asking to not collect any data about your browsing activity. Learn more about "Do Not Track" and how to activate it.

If you haven't set "Do Not Track" in your browser, you can still opt-out by accepting our "opt-out cookie", signaling to our servers that you opted-out for all subsequent visits to sites measured by HeatMap, Inc. This opt-out preference will only be taken into account for the browser on which the "opt-out cookie" has been placed.

If you do not accept this "opt-out cookie", or if you later delete it, our servers will not be able to detect your opt-out preference, and will therefore continue to collect data about your browsing activity.

How we secure data

We have implemented various measures to ensure that the information is adequately protected against unauthorised access, use, disclosure and destruction. Please keep in mind that risk can never be eliminated but can be significantly reduced. All measures which we have taken significantly reduce the risk. We will not be held liable by any third party in the event of unauthorized access, use and/or disclosure of information. Measures include:

  • Access to the information stored within our servers is restricted to a limited number of HeatMap, Inc. employees and to users designated on our client's accounts. OVH SAS can access the information only in specific and limited circumstances. Our employees, our clients and these third parties are bound by confidentiality.
  • Our servers are protected by a) firewalls establishing a barrier between our trusted, secure internal network and the internet and b) IP restrictions, limiting access to whitelisted IPs.
  • Each client may only access information pertaining to the sites it is tracking and to the users browsing on its website pages.
  • We use HTTPS for our site pages and services providing secure transfer of data to prevent wiretapping and man-in-the-middle attacks.
  • We will review our information collection and processing practices periodically and we will review and amend this privacy policy accordingly.
