N|Solid Telemetry FAQ

What type of data is transmitted?

The telemetry functionality in N|Solid measures and collects non-personal information, such as performance, scale, and feature usage. In addition, it collects information about module versions in use in order to check for security vulnerabilities. Information regarding application server names and IP addresses is not stored.

How does NodeSource use the data that is collected?

NodeSource securely transmits module information to our vulnerability server to check for known module vulnerabilities. Application usage data helps us understand how N|Solid is used in order to make a better product.

Is Telemetry on by default?

No. Telemetry is enabled once a license key is installed.

Can users change their mind and disable Telemetry later?

Removing the license key from the Console configuration file disables telemetry. Please note that certain features, including security vulnerability checking require a license key for operation.

How is it transmitted?

Once a valid license key has been provided, the N|Solid Console will send telemetry data over HTTP and Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) to a NodeSource service.

What are the privacy implications?

NodeSource takes user privacy very seriously. More information about our privacy practices can be found here
