How is data in Burst anonymized?
Burst Statistics prioritizes user privacy by not storing any personally identifiable information. When a user visits a website using Burst, the plugin only processes their IP address to determine their country as stated above. However, the IP address is not stored in Burst’s database. This ensures that individual users cannot be identified from this data.
Similarly, while Burst uses the visitor’s user agent to identify their browser, device, and operating system for analytical purposes, the actual user agent string is not saved in the database. By not storing the IP address and user agent, Burst effectively anonymizes the data it collects. This helps maintain user anonymity while still providing valuable insights.
