Web Visitor Information Collected on Our Site and By Us on Our Customers’ Sites
Blue Triangle Technologies provides measurement and analysis services to companies operating business Web sites to help them optimize their end-user experience and site revenue, identify bot and malicious traffic, and quickly respond to site outages. Our performance and analytics data collection services collect web activity as an extension of our customer’s websites. We also use similar technologies for visitors to our website.
Blue Triangle collects and processes the following information:
- -Performance metrics, like page load time, DOM Interactive, and DOM Complete.
- -User experience metrics, like bounces, exits, and click paths.
- -Financial metrics, like revenue, orders, and conversions.
- -IP addresses, which are pseudonymized during collection, and thus GDPR compliant.
- -When used on our customer’s sites, Blue Triangle’s Software does not collect names, addresses, phone numbers, credit card numbers, social security numbers, pictures, and social preferences.

Blue Triangle pseudonymizes IP addresses at collection. As a result, the IP addresses captured are not tied to any personal information.
