As a young, growing service provider it is necessary for Octobox.io to store some data. If we do so it will be for one of two reasons:
We collect the e-mail addresses of those who sign up with Octobox.io, aggregate information on what pages users access or visit, and information volunteered by the consumer.
These tools are very common and widely used by other sites, but they do have privacy implications. When you visit sites that use these tools, you are potentially telling companies such as Google that you visited, as well as some information about how your web browser is configured. If you don’t want to share your browsing activities on sites with other companies, you can install opt-out browser plugins.

We use Google Analytics to collect information about how people use this site. Google Analytics stores information such as what pages you visit, how long you are on the site, how you got here, what you click on, and information about your web browser. Your computer's IP address is masked (only a portion is stored) and personal information is only reported in aggregate. We do not allow Google to use or share our analytics data for any purpose besides providing us with analytics information.
If you are unhappy with the idea of sharing the fact you visited our sites (and any other sites) with Google, you can install the official browser plugin for blocking Google Analytics
We use logs to collect information about the state of the service in order to address bugs and improve the site. These logs may include details about your behavior at the time of an error, including your session information and your computer's IP address.
