Everything you need to know about GoSquared and the GDPR.
The European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) protects the fundamental right to privacy and the protection of personal data for people in the European Union.
GoSquared services comply with the GDPR.
Protecting our customers’ information and their users’ data is our number one priority at GoSquared. As a data controller and processor we are ensuring our compliance with the GDPR.

Data portability solutions and data management tools
In accordance with the GDPR legislation, we've built the following compliance related tools:
Profile Deletion API
We've introduced an update to our Deletion API with the option to "blacklist" a profile from the GoSquared Customer Data Hub. This enables our customers to respond to user requests to permanently delete personal information, such as names and email addresses, from their GoSquared account.
The update to the Deletion API also prevents the profile from being sent to any third party services connected to GoSquared, as well as preventing the profile from being re-tracked and re-appearing in GoSquared.
Anonymise IP Addresses
If you would prefer not to track the IP addresses of your site's visitors, you can use the anonymizeIP option in the tracking code. GoSquared will still track an IP address for each visitor, but with much less precision. This means that their geolocation will also be less precise – which is a good thing for protecting a visitor's anonymity. For example, you may only see the country they are from rather than their city.
Personal Data Export
Under the GDPR legislation, customers and users of GoSquared can request an export of all personally identifiable information associated with their account.
To request a data export, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
