Why do you collect telemetry data?
We collects anonymized data from users in order to understand ZincSearch's usage and improve ZincSearch. This can be deactivated at any time, and any data that has already been collected can be deleted on request. Please send an email to email@example.com to request deletion of the anonymized data.
What tools do ZincSearch uses to collect and visualize data?
We use Segment, a platform for data collection and management, to collect usage data. We then feed that data into Amplitude, a tool for graphing and highlighting data, so that we can build visualizations according to our needs.

How do I disable telemetry collection
You can set environment variable ZINC_TELEMETRY=disabled to disable telemetry collection
Do I need to know anything else?
We have implemented sentry in order to capture any errors happening and be able to fix them. It captures errors as and when they happen and sends them to sentry in order for us to analyze and fix them.
