We receive the standard Google Analytics data set (page views, location, etc). We also receive a small number of custom events when you take user action (topic-create, topic-delete, sample-topic, etc).
Do We Collect Sensitive Data?
The telemetry we capture is restricted to product specific information like page view or user action.
Page views do not include query strings or url fragments (which do contain sensitive data).
We do not capture any specifics of your Kafka cluster/s or anything beyond standard google analytics and your interaction with our product user interface.
We may collect your License ID in our analytics events, as described in our EULA.
Why Do We Collect Product Telemetry?
Google Analytics is the only mechanism we have to understand how our product is being used.
kPow is designed to run in air-gapped, security conscious environments. When we release new features or tweak our UI it helps to understand how these feature or changes are received by our users.
