Cookies are used on the Drauger OS website in order to collect user analytics. These cookies do not collect any sensitive information such as usernames and/or passwords, users real life identities, or credit or debit card information.
User analytics are collected and added to an aggregate pool in order to better understand the users on our website and better improve our website for all.
User Analytics used to be collected through Google Analytics, and while this service does collect information such as location, screen resolution, interests associated with a Google Account, and more information that could be used to identify a specific device, none of this data is used beyond it’s aggregate capacity. Information such as location will not be used at all, just logged.
Currently, Google Analytics is not in use. Instead, we use the built-in analytics in our web hosting control panel. This was done because it provides information far more useful to useful to us, while also not collecting information that is potentially identifying.
Please feel free to OPT-OUT OF GOOGLE ANALYTICS if you prefer.
Data we collect
Drauger OS itself does not send Drauger OS Development any information at current time.
However, data in relation to Drauger OS is collected. On SourceForge, we collect: How many downloads there are of every file hosted, How many downloads there are of each file per country,How many downloads of each file there are per operating system. All this data is aggregate and open to be viewed by the public.
The Drauger OS website, draugeros.org, collects a multitude of data which is also aggregate, but not directly available to the public. This information is collected using the built-in analytics in our web hosting control panel. Not all data collected is used and the only personally identifying information collected is what OS family is in use and what browser is in use.
How we use your data
Data collected from any user is used in an aggregate data pool wherever possible. Data is only used in a non-aggregate way when a user contacts us with a specific, edge-case bug or issue. This is done with the user’s knowledge as Drauger OS Development works with them to fix the bug or issue. After any such issue is resolved, any personally identifying data is deleted. The only data saved is what caused the bug or issue and how to resolve it.
Any data in any aggregate pool is used to improve all of Drauger OS Development’s services, not just the service that the data was collected from.
