‡ More on Hotjar: 
Hotjar is an analysis tool that allow us to view a customer’s actions on the site and request feedback. The recording of a user’s actions is anonymised by not showing any text input, e.g. name and email address, and not storing your IP address; it is therefore not connected to your user account and not used for any sort of profiling. We use Hotjar to see how our customers interact with new features in order to improve these features. We have a data processing agreement in place with Hotjar that guarantees that they will not use the data for any other purpose.
