Frequently asked questions about link tracking in Activity Map.
By turning on Activity Map tracking, you may be collecting personally identifiable information (PII) data. This data can be used on its own or with other information to identify, contact, or locate a single person, or to identify an individual in context.
Here are some known cases where PII data might be collected using Activity Map Tracking:
Mailtolinks. A mailto link is a type of HTML link that activates the default mail client on the computer for sending an e-mail.
User IDlinks that may show up in the header/footer of a website once the user has logged in.
| Q: When does link tracking occur?
|A: Activity Map link and region identification occurs when users click on a page.|
| Q: What is tracked by default?
| A: If a click event occurs on an element, the element has to pass some checks to determine if AppMeasurement will treat it as a link. These are the checks:
If the answer is Yes to any of the questions above, then the element is treated as a link and will be tracked.
Important: Button tags with the attribute type="button" are not considered to be links by AppMeasurement. Consider removing "type='button'" on the button tags and adding role="button" or submit="button" instead.
Important: An anchor tags with an href that starts with "#" is considered an internal target location by AppMeasurement, not a link (since you do not leave the page.) By default, Activity Map does not track these internal target locations. It tracks only links that navigate the user to a new page.
