The Data the Popup Maker Plugin Collects

Important: While we collect a variety of types of data outlined below, Popup Maker does not send any user data about any of your users or site visitors back to our servers during our usage tracking.

In order to improve the plugin and its ecosystem, we need insights into how people are using the plugin. Unfortunately, since this plugin is a distributed software using WordPress, there is no way for us to easily see how people have configured the plugin which makes planning new features and enhancements difficult.
To assist us in this process, we have implemented an opt-in tracking system into the plugin. When the plugin is installed, admin users are prompted with a message asking them to allow the plugin to occasionally send data about the site’s configurations.
This is completely optional and can be enabled and disabled at any time from the “Settings” page within the plugin.

Types of Data We Collect

There are a few different types of data we collect for a few different reasons. First, we collect data about the WordPress and server configurations to help us understand the types of sites using Popup Maker.

We also collect data about the popups created by the plugin. This helps us understand what types of popups people are creating and how they are using them.
