PRIVACY-FIRST POLICY

Who we are

Our legal name is Reveille Advisors LLC and our website address is https://reveilleadvisors.com. We help clients throughout the world and are registered out of Colorado in the United States. For any questions regarding your use of our site, please contact us at team [at] reveilleadvisors [dot] com. 

What we collect and what we use it for

At Reveille Advisors, we champion privacy from Big Tech, such as Google. In fact, we dislike Google greatly. As experienced SEOs, we also appreciate the data we can learn from online traffic. That said, our clients (and prospective clients) come first so we’ve decided to use Plausible Analytics for all traffic to our site. Plausible Analytics is a privacy-friendly open-source paid-alternative to Google Analytics’ free platform. As the saying goes, if it’s free, you’re the product.

We do not track people across their devices and across websites and apps that they visit. All data is isolated to a single day, a single website, and a single device only. There is no way to know whether the same person visits our site from more than one device or visits another website.

Plausible tracks overall trends in our website traffic, it does not track individual visitors. We don’t use cookies, we don’t generate any persistent identifiers and we don’t collect or store any personal or identifiable data. All of the data is aggregated data only and it has no personal information.

By using Plausible Analytics, all the site measurement is carried out absolutely anonymously. We measure only the most essential data points and nothing else. All the metrics we do collect fit on one single page. Here is the complete list of what we collect and store about your website visitors:

  • Page URL
  • HTTP Referer
  • Browser
  • Operating System
  • Country, Region, City

Plausible offers a robust explanation as to how they count unique site visitors without the use of cookies here. 

Hosted in the EU powered by European-owned cloud infrastructure

Plausible is a small team based in the EU. The legal entity is incorporated in Estonia.

All of the data that is collected is kept fully secured, encrypted, and hosted on a 100% renewable energy-powered server in Falkenstein, Germany. The server is owned by Hetzner, a European company. This ensures that all of the website data is covered by the European Union’s strict laws on data privacy.

Plausible also uses Bunny (another European-owned provider from Slovenia) for global CDN and DDoS protection. This ensures that all visitor data collected is exclusively processed with servers owned and operated by European companies.

For encryption, they use HTTPS in transit and the hashing process at rest. They also do regular backups. The backups are also stored in the EU, in a redundant site.

No third-party vendors are involved other than the hosting company that owns the servers where the data is stored.

Lastly, we don’t have to worry about Schrems II and that it invalidates the EU-US Privacy Shield. This website data never leaves the EU, hence why you don’t see privacy and cookie alerts upon visiting our site.

Data Ownership

  • Website data is not shared with advertising companies or any other companies in general.
  • Website data is not sent to any third parties at all.
  • Website data is not mined and harvested for personal and behavioral trends.
  • Website data is not monetized.

GDPR, CCPA, and PECR compliant web analytics

By using Plausible, we don’t need to have any GDPR, CCPA or PECR prompts and we do not need a complex privacy policy about our use of analytics and cookies. With Plausible, we are not tracking any personal data, so visitors can enjoy their time on ReveilleAdvisors.com without any annoyances and distractions. Pretty cool, right? 

Transparency

We have not placed any backdoors into our software and have not received any requests for doing so. We have also never received a National Security Letter, FISA order, or any other classified request for user information.

Contact Info and Third-Party Tools

If you use our “Schedule a Call” option on our website your information will be shared with a third-party scheduling app, Calendly (https://calendly.com/). This is a well-known and used call-scheduling app but we do not control how your information is used on their end. What we can tell you is that we will never email, call, or text you aside from replying to your initial request. No email marketing, newsletters, or other correspondence will ever occur unless you’re a client. We also won’t share or monetize the contact information you provided us for our first meeting.

If you email us via our basic email address (ie: team at domain dot com) that will be part of Google’s Gmail service (https://mail.google.com/mail/). While we do have a paid account that has all the available security options it will still be routed through Google. If you are not comfortable trusting Google (we don’t blame you) you can connect with us through one of our secure options that are available. To be fully encrypted end-to-end or to remain anonymous, both parties need to utilize the service. Those include, but are not limited to: ProtonMail, Threema, MySudo, Telegram, Kik, LINE, Tutanota, and more.

Summary

In short, we advocate for privacy so it would be quite duplicitous of us to violate your privacy as a site visitor, prospective client, or current client. We welcome all contacts to reach us at the encrypted ProtonMail option, along with many additional services that are secure and encrypted for all communication methods. We will never exploit you, your data, or your personally identifiable information (PII) for our gains. We appreciate your trust in us and we look forward to serving you.
