SourceTree's analytics is designed to discover how users are interacting with SourceTree. Here's information that we do and don't collect.
What we DON'T collect:
- Personal information. We define personal information as information that, alone or when in combination with other information, may be used to readily identify, contact, or locate a specific individual, such as: name, address, email address, or phone number.
- Information about the content in any repositories.
What we DO collect:
- Which buttons and panels you chose to interact with. For example:
- Did you use the keyboard to commit (shortcut)?
- Did you select 'Push commits' from the commit sheet (cascade)?
- Did you use the toolbar to pull changes (click)?
- Did you stage in Git using the staging area by dragging files (drag)?
- Very basic system information, such as your system locale, screen resolution, and OS version
- Counts of various statistics, for example:
- How many bookmarked repositories you have
- How many hosted accounts you have
- How many repositories have been opened in a twenty-four hour period
- Whether certain SourceTree preferences are set i.e. whether you use the staging area, or if the command line tools are installed
