What information will be tracked by opting into usage tracking?


This document is reviewed periodically to ensure the information contained is up-to-date.

On installing or updating the plugin, BNFW may ask if you’d like to opt into usage tracking. By doing this, you’ll be helping the plugin by allowing for better planning of new features, fixing bugs, and prioritising development based on user feedback.

Opting into usage tracking is completely optional and you can opt out at any time. This choice is recorded in Notifications > Settings in the WP Admin.

When opted in, usage tracking uses Plausible Analytics.

Plausible Analytics will track URLs on the following four links in the core plugin:

In the WP Admin Sidebar:

  • Notifications > Documentation
  • Notifications > Add-ons

In the Notification editor when adding or editing a BNFW Notification:

  • The Documentation button to the left of the Message Body WYSIWYG editor
  • The Shortcode Help button to the left of the Message Body WYSIWYG editor

What Information is Collected by Usage Tracking?

Directly, from the Plausible Analytics links, the following information is collected:

  • The location of the link in the plugin, as outlined above, as a source.
  • The medium is set to ‘referral’.

Your anonymity is preserved where possible. All other website usage tracking information is stored by Plausible Analytics and is anonymised.
