Website Analytics
To improve and optimise the user experience on our website, we use so-called tracking technologies. Smartdeals uses them to see which pages and products customers have visited to improve the quality of the content and products we provide. For those purposes, Smartdeals uses two main services: Google Analytics and Hotjar.

Google Analytics

Google Analytics can read certain text files (cookies) which located on the client's computer. Smartdeals does not share or get any customer information, such as name or contact details through Google Analytics. Location of the client roughly determined by IP address you use. The data provided through Google Analytics is encrypted. For better marketing analysis Google Analytics will store cookie information for 38 months.

To prevent the transmission of cookie-generated information, the client can install a browser plug-in. But doing that, the customer will opt-out not only from Smartdeals but also from any other website which uses Google Analytics. You can get the plug-in from this link.

Smartdeals uses Hotjar to understand your needs better and to optimise this service and experience. Hotjar is a technology service that helps us better understand your experience (e.g. how much time you spend on which pages, which links you choose to click, what you as a user do and don’t like, etc.) and this enables us to build and maintain our service with your user feedback.

We find this very important, so we can trace who has bought the product to prevent any damage or hazard.
