Jumpcat is a browser extension for GitHub.com. The Browser is a sensitive environment. Jumpcat is committed to protecting our personal information and privacy.
Jumpcat does not send sensitive data to some remote server. All your personal data (browsing history) are stored in the browser storage.
Jumpcat tracks basic usage metrics (outlined below). This allows us to make better product decisions. All telemetry data are anonymous. When we do a public launch, these will be opt-in, but for now, we require them. So if you aren't comfortable with that, please wait for our public launch. At this time, Jumpcat is still in private beta.
What Information Jumpcat Collects and Why
Every time you navigate on github.com, Jumpcat stores the current page URL and time in the WebExtensions Stroage. This store is exclusively accessible from Jumpcat browser extension. No data are being sent to any remote server. Your data stay local in your browser.
Each time you open the Jumpcat command menu we send a tracking event to our tracking provider Mixpanel. This tracking event includes the time, counter, your uuid (randomly generated) and the search mode. Note: Only the search mode (e.g. `history`, `command`, or `help`) is sent. Any search entered in the search input is not sent.
Information Jumpcat Does Not Collect
Other than what is mentioned above, Jumpcat never sends any user data / personally identifiable data to any remote server.
How does Jumpcat work
- To register a keyboard listener, needed to open Jumpcat using a shortcut combo (e.g CMD+k)
