We run the privacy focused Plausible web analytics platform to collect some anonymous usage data for statistical purposes. The goal is to track overall trends in our website traffic, it is not to track individual visitors. All the data is in aggregate only. No personal data is collected.

Data collected includes referral sources, top pages, visit duration, information from the devices (device type, operating system, country and browser) used during the visit and more.

Please note that above does not apply to our Support Page and our Shop Page where we collect personal identifiable information in order to provide our service.

Above also does not apply if the url contains an affiliate id in the URL. In this case, a cookie consent banner is displayed.

Online Shop

We use Ecwid as our online shop. The Ecwid integration is only used at our Shop Page. We do not have influence on how Ecwid collects data but details can be found in Ecwid’s Privacy Policy. This is why you might see a cookie consent banner when you access this page.

AirGradient Forum

We use a self-hosted version of discourse for our community forum at We track the page visits on our forum with the privacy focused Plausible web analytics platform.

Many features on our forum require a forum account for example to post and reply to topics. To sign up for a forum account, we require your name, a username, and an e-mail address.

We use your account data to identify you on the forum and to create pages specific to you, such as your profile page. Since our forum is public, all the information that you post (including your username) will be accessible to all visitors. Your email address that you use to signup will not be publicly visible.

We use your e-mail address to:

  • notify you about posts and other activity on the forum
  • reset your password and help keep your account secure
  • contact you in special circumstances related to your account
  • contact you about legal requests, like DMCA takedown requests

You may provide additional data for your account, like a short biography, your location, or your birthday, on the profile settings page for your account. We make that data available to others who can access the forum. You don’t have to provide this additional information, and you can erase it at any time. We store your account data as long as your account remains open.
