    June 26, 2019 — Imagine a website that is getting 1000 users a day. Now imagine that about 50 of them are spending money on the site. You probably want to get more of the users that are spending money on the site but how do you know where these users are coming from? Maybe you know that all of them are coming from Twitter or Facebook but do you know which post or tweet refers the most people who actually convert to customers? Or, how do you know how many signed up to receive your lead magnet? This is where analytics comes in.

    In this talk, we will discuss:

    How to see where your users are coming from
    What pages/posts your users most spend time on
    What actions your users do on your website
    What UTM codes are and how to use them

  • Heather Burns and Marissa Goldsmith: Getting the Balance Right: GDPR and Google Analytics

    Heather Burns and Marissa Goldsmith: Getting the Balance Right: GDPR and Google Analytics

    WordCamp Belfast 2018Speakers: Heather Burns, Marissa Goldsmith

    April 17, 2019 — The web sites and apps we create, both for ourselves and for our clients, need to collect user analytics for a range of reasons ranging from workflow to user experience to security.

    However, user tracking can cross the line from insightful anonymised data collection to intrusive personally identifiable monitoring. GDPR, Europe’s revamp of its data protection and privacy regime, becomes enforceable on 25 May – the day before WordCamp Belfast.

    The incoming ePrivacy Directive revamp also renews rules on analytics. This double overhaul creates refreshed obligations for you to inform your site users about any counting, tracking, and monitoring you carry out on your web sites and apps, to provide users with options over your counting and tracking, and to ensure that your data collection respects your visitors privacy.

    In our talk, we will help you to achieve a healthy balance between data collection and privacy which respects your business, your users, and your refreshed legal obligations.

    Our talk will cover:
    How to understand your audience so that you can understand their data
    Why minimal data collection and retention makes sense from an ethical perspective
    What user tracking is and is not permitted under GDPR as well as the ePrivacy Directive revamp
    How to explain your use of analytics and tracking in your privacy notices
    How to provide your visitors with an opt-out of analytics and tracking
    How to collect analytics with the greatest respect for user privacy
    How to ensure information is not personally identifiable to an individual (Deaggregation/anonymisation/pseudonymisation)
    How to determine a data retention and deletion period
    Dealing with third party tools: Google Analytics as our example
    What other forms of tracking cross ethical and legal boundaries
