Plug-ins, Firstbird is using

Website analysis with Matomo

Firstbird uses the website analysis tool Matomo to analyse the behaviour of our users (Talent Scouts, Recruiters, and Administrators).

It allows us to see which features are used and how often. This information is relevant for us, since it enables us to adjust our product to the requirements of our customers and their users.

When we discover that a certain feature is hardly used, we carry out an internal examination as to whether it makes sense to continue the feature or whether it can/should be replaced by another feature.

Which data are collected?

In the version we use, Matomo applies an anonymisation of IP addresses. This means that the IP addresses are shortened prior to any use for the analysis of usage behaviour.

In addition, the following usage data are collected:

  • Number of visitors per page
  • User properties (e.g. language, role)
  • Events (e.g. change of the colour scheme, new branding)

Where are the data being processed?


Please note!

No cookies will be saved and the IP address will be anonymized 


Notifications on Appcues

Firstbird uses Appcues to send messages to users (Talent Scouts, Recruiters, Administrators) about a Firstbird company account.

We use these messages to inform e.g. on changes on our platform or on current technical problems.

Which data are collected?
