Broadly speaking, we collect info needed to help us fulfil our accounting requirements to the government (your address, your country as calculated from your IP address), information to help us determine appropriate special offers, information to facilitate customer service (e.g. by comparing IP addresses of accounts, we can determine when a customer has accidentially created a second account without their downloads due to a typo), information to combat fraud (e.g. we monitor how often files were downloaded, and from what IP addresses, in order to build cases for fighting credit card fraud), information to debug broken code, and information to help us determine statistical trends with our business (e.g. what pages you viewed, as seen through Google Analytics).

Passwords

We store your passwords in an encrypted format such that our staff cannot read them.

Cookies

We use cookies to maintain user sessions for log in and also to track user behavior across multiple devices. We also use third party cookies as listed below.

Log Files and Google Analytics

Like many other web sites, we make use of log files and Google Analytics. The information inside both includes IP addresses, geographic data, types of browsers, Internet Service Providers (ISP), date/time stamps, referring/exit pages, and number of clicks. We use these primarily to debug our codebase, improve our website's speed, and analyse broad trends as to inform management in making decisions about the business's future strategy. Google Analytics stitches together sessions across time and devices.

Stripe

As with most other websites using Stripe, Stipe provides us with information about you. We use this information for mandatory taxation and accounting purposes.

Remarketing

We let third party advertising companies track whenever you have visited Oxbridge Notes and its affiliated websites. We also use identifying information (such as your email address) to create custom advertising lists. Both of these sources of information are used to redisplay advertisements to you on other websites, such as Google, Facebook, Twitter, and websites affiliated with the aforementioned.

Conversion Tracking

We use conversion tracking to track whenever you have done certain commercially valuable actions on our website, chiefly when you have made a purchase. This conversion information is later used by us to figure out what advertising campaigns were effective in triggering this sale. Conversion tracking is done in association with a third party advertising provider (e.g. Twitter, Facebook, Google), who also have access to the data.

Customer Service

Besides storing this data ourselves, the third party providing our chat widget (Fresh Chat) will also have a copy.

Multi-device tracking

We use Google Analytics universal User-ID to associate engagement data from different devices and multiple sessions.

These screencasts are aimed at ambitious programmers who need to take full responsibility for their codebases - especially as owners of small software companies.

  • Programming from a business-owner perspective - how to monitor your systems, write tests that'll let you sleep at night, and solve common technical issues faced by indie-hackers (like bot attacks, accounting systems, or financial fraud.)
  • Online marketing - scalable SEO, taming Google Analytics, profitable paid ads, email marketing.
  • Going one level deeper in the stack - when ultimate responsibility for a codebase lies on your shoulders, you need to understand software at a more fundamental level. Therefore we emphasize deep and timeless technical topics - like SQL, unix, vim, etc.
