Why we use Google Analytics?

To get valuable data about how people use HeySkill.me. To learn where we need to change the website to make it even more usable (example: if users don't click on the recommended content on the start page => learning: do we need to highlight that content more or is it maybe not relevant for our users?). But also to learn more about what countries and cities our users are coming from => essential to optimize HeySkill.me for you.

Why we use Algolia?

We use Algolia to provide you an amazing search feature on HeySkill.me. So you can find the best learning resources from our database within milliseconds, filter based on your preferences and then access the best learning resources from all the best learning platforms. Algolia also stores all the search queries from users, so we can understand better what you are looking for, what search queries deliver no results, what are the most used search queries and what searches should provide better results - to improve our database, recommendation parameters, and search filters.

Why we use Slack?

We use Slack not only for internal communication but for getting notified if a user experiences an error on HeySkill.me and gets redirected to a 404 error page because of that. For example: if you visit a result page and Algolia couldn't find that result => you get redirected to the 404 error page and we receive a notification containing ONLY the page on SkillMe you tried to open + the error message from the frontend. We DON'T receive any personal data such as your IP address, your behaviour on other websites or other details.

Why we use affiliate programs?

Keeping HeySkill.me up running and the database updated costs money. If you want to support us covering those costs: use HeySkill.me to find and buy online courses from Udemy, books from Amazon or apps from the Apple App Store - then we get a small commission for every sale. To allow our affiliate partners to track if a visitor came from HeySkill.me before buying an online course, book or app on our partners platforms, our website will load the following tracker:
- Rakuten LinkShare
- Amazon Associates
- iTunes Link Maker
- SkimLinks

Request deleting personal data
We want to be transparent about where your user data get stored and what scripts will connect with other websites in the background, when you visit HeySkill.me - this (and because we are legally required) is why we give you an easy to understand overview about what services we are using, why and what data they collect. We are careful and minimal with installing services from other companies: we don't use scripts from Facebook and Twitter for example but instead use simple links - to protect your privacy as good as we can. We also don't implement Google Adwords or other ad platforms, because we care about your privacy and don't like annoying ads. You will still notice some cookies beeing saved (click here to learn what cookies are) since they are sometimes needed to provide services.
