Heroku is a cloud platform to host and deploy our application code (the basis of the Chameleon software application). This serves as the infrastructure that allows us to log you into the correct account, or show you the correct colors when you add a particular HEX code etc.
MongoDB is our database provider, where we store all data associated with Chameleon. This is what holds the information about the configuration of a tour you created or the history of what a user has seen (to ensure they don't see it again). It's our source of truth and key component in allowing Chameleon to function.
Mixpanel is an analytics platform that helps us understand what parts of our product users are engaging with. We also track overall tour data by account (e.g. how many tours were started on a certain domain). We don't collect or see any user attribute data you are sending to Chameleon here.
Hotjar is a website analytics and session replay product that helps us see clearly what actions our website visitors take and where they might get stuck or confused. This alerts us to issues that we can resolve.
Segment is an API hub; in addition to our database, we send all user interaction and analytics data through Segment and then onwards to other vendors.
Stripe is our credit card and payment processing platform. Stripe handles all the sensitive credit card and account information on our behalf so we can rely on their super-secure system and keep your data safe.
ChartMogul is our revenue tracking and analysis software, so we can see which customers we have and the payment status of each customer easily. It also help us track our growth and better understand how different customer cohorts are behaving to enable us to create a successful business. The data comes directly from ChartMogul's native integration with Stripe.
Intercom helps us manage our support (tickets and help articles) with our customers. Intercom also supplements our customer data from other sources, and you can read more about this here.
Customer.io helps us manage our email communication (such as feature announcements, or blog updates) with our customers.
Postmark is an transactional email management platform. We use it to send emails such as magic login links, or when you invite your colleagues to Chameleon.
Slack is our internal communications platform (instead of email) and also contains a stream of events that our customers are taking, such as payments, errors, usage and tickets. This helps everyone know about issues to respond to quickly and provides us a clearer idea of what's happening with "in the wild".
