By using Littledata’s services you are granting us access to private data which we undertake to handle in a secure and confidential way. The types of data you share with us are covered below.

Secure data transfer and storage

When Littledata requests or sends your data to web services you opt into, or to display data in your browser, this is done via a secure (SSL) web connection. Any of your data that we store to provide your services is in a database hosted on IBM or AWS servers in New Jersey, USA (with the highest security precautions), and accessible only to our web servers (for your viewing) and a select number of Littledata employees and contractors.

Email and password

We use your email to provide customer support, and infrequently promote new products and services to you (only from Littledata). You can opt out of these emails. We promise never to share this email address with third parties.

Your password is encrypted at rest.

Google login

By connecting your Google account you are granting us access to 

  1. Your name, Google+ page and profile image
  2. Your email address
  3. All Google Analytics properties linked to your account

Google Analytics

Littledata pulls a range of data from your Google Analytics account. We use this data to:
(a) Provide customised HTML displays of your website performance, and accessible only via your Google account or (with explicit permission from you) to other members your invite to your Littledata account.

(b) Test new analytic methods and visualisations for our internal use. Your data will only be accessible by Littledata’s European Union based employees and contractors, bound by a non-disclosure agreement

(c) Provide anonymised benchmarks to other customers. We promise this will never be identifiable to you or your website, and will only be used in aggregate segments of at least 10 benchmark companies – so that your performance cannot be inferred from the benchmark

Sending Personally Identifiable Information (PII) about your end users to Google Analytics (for example, customer email addresses) is in breach of Google’s terms as well as our Terms.

Shopify stores

Our Shopify apps pull historic and current customer orders in order to feed this information onto your chosen destinations. We only store non-personal information (order numbers, transaction amounts and product names), and only for up to 3 months for reconciliation and audit purposes.

Where you ask us to send PII customer data from Shopify to a destination (e.g. Segment.com) we pass this information straight on without storing in our own database.
