Marketing and Sales

We work hard to find and introduce new people to our product as well as improve the quality of our website. We want to communicate clearly and directly with everyone that visits. To do this we need data. However, we practice privacy by design, privacy by default and data minimization so we’ll take the smallest amount of data we can while still providing our visitors an enjoyable experience.

We request processing of personal data of visitors, such as IP address, a cookie identifier and email address (but only in the case that visitors request information be sent by email). We also collect non-personal data to learn how visitors found our website, what kind of device they’re using, how long they stayed, which pages they visited, etc. This non-personal data is tied to a temporary identifier that is removed after the end of each browsing session.

In that case you’re more likely to secure your spot. We will use your email to communicate with you. We will keep all that data in our CRM that you can read about in this Privacy Policy.

HubSpot products are hosted in U.S.-based data centers, and HubSpot stores user data for 24 months. More specifically, we remove the data:

  • after 6 months from collection when you contacted us or downloaded some content (like whitepaper) and we didn't hear back from you since,

Piwik PRO product

Our clients own 100% of the data we gather on their behalf.

A Data Processing Agreement (DPA) is available for both Piwik PRO Analytics Suite Cloud (SaaS) and Piwik PRO Analytics Suite On-Premises – our Account executives or customer success team members can provide details.

Piwik PRO Analytics Suite Cloud is hosted on either:

  • Orange Flexible Engine France (FR Central),
  • ElastX Sweden (SWE Central),
  • Microsoft Azure Netherlands (EU West),
  • Microsoft Azure Germany (DE Central),
  • Microsoft Azure United States (US East),
  • Microsoft Azure Hong Kong (Southeast Asia),
  • Orange Cloud France (Paris).

You may also use some other infrastructure provider like Leaseweb in the US and Germany.

Piwik PRO On-Premises is hosted in the client's own cloud subscription with Microsoft Azure, Orange Cloud or Elastx.

We do NOT send collected data to other sub-processors or third parties nor do we use it for our own purposes.

Data retention periods are set by the client of Piwik PRO Analytics Suite and governed by the separate Data Processing Agreement.

The full scope of data that can be gathered by our platform is described here.

All cookies used by the Piwik PRO platform are listed here.

We want all clients to be fully compliant so those who are using Piwik PRO Analytics Suite with Tag Manager can also take advantage of Consent Manager. But it's the client's responsibility to configure their Consent Manager instance according to their own privacy policy.

Requests to exercise any individual data subject rights of visitors to a website tracked by one of the instances of Piwik PRO Cloud should be sent by a Client to support@piwik.pro so we can remove the record from our database.

For users of any Piwik PRO instance please refer to these Online service terms and Data processing agreement unless your organization has signed a separate contract with Piwik PRO. Also, it’s important to know that we use third-party tools to deliver in-app communication service to the end users (operators) of the platform and a CRM to deliver an onboarding flow:

  • Piwik PRO Core - Stonly (data hosted in EEA), HubSpot (data hosted in the USA)
  • Piwik PRO Enterprise - Stonly (data hosted in EEA), Freshdesk & Freshchat (US company, data hosted in EU)

If your team would like to contact our support, keep in mind that Freshdesk is a US company regardless of its hosting location. Send us datasets or screenshots using your own secure channel or our secure tool. We provide all information about this during the onboarding process or details can be requested directly via support@piwik.pro.

If you request a database export, it will be placed on a secure server on Amazon EU in Frankfurt, Germany.

In case you purchase our services via our website (without contacting sales) please note that we’re using Paddle, our Merchant of Record, to process your order. Here’s their privacy policy.


The recruitment process is shared within the Piwik PRO group, which includes Piwik PRO SA, Piwik PRO GmbH and Piwik PRO LLC. During recruitment we will gather and process personal data such as employment history, education and projects you’ve worked on. We get this information from your CV, the application form and from links or other information you provide us. To submit your application to us you must first agree to processing of your personal data (a check box on the application page) in accordance with Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR. Sending us your job application via jobs@piwik.pro means that you acknowledge our privacy policy. The provision of your personal data is neither a statutory nor a contractual requirement, but we can't consider you for a position without the ability to process your personal data.

Only HR and team members who are directly involved in your recruitment process, usually representatives of the team you are applying to, have access to your data. Each team member has been trained in data security and is formally obliged by their contract to keep it private. All who would have access to your recruitment data have such a contract with the Piwik PRO group (defined at the beginning of this privacy policy).

We collect and use personal information you have provided only for the purposes of the recruitment process. Data that we collect throughout recruitment is used only for the communication with candidates, to evaluate their qualifications and to make a final hiring decision. During the recruitment process we use software from external partners such as Google Suite and Traffit. The maximum time your data is held is 36 months.

You have a right to access your data, correct or remove it, or completely withdraw your consent for processing it at any time. Such requests should be sent to our DPO: gdpr@piwik.pro. The withdrawal of a consent does not affect the lawfulness of processing based on consent before its withdrawal.
