RebelMouse Data Collection Policies

Over the last few years, data privacy has become an even more important issue than in the past. Initiatives such as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) have led to increased levels of procedural scrutiny and the need for visibility into the data that platforms collect. Here at RebelMouse, we want to make sure that it is clear what data we collect, what we don't collect, and why.


RebelMouse is not actively collecting data about users for any purpose outside of necessary cookies and details for our system admins, and for data about users who are created within the RebelMouse platform (e.g, writers, editors, admins, etc.).

From a technical point of view, we collect two cookies to indicate if a user is logged in when they visit a page, and one cookie when a user is logged out of the page. This allows us to identify the user's logged-in/out state, which we can then use conditional statements on in our code to change what they see on the site. Examples of this can include, but are not limited to:

  • Showing private sections/posts to logged-in users
  • Showing a user's bio page, if it's not public
  • Showing different parts of the page that may only be relevant to logged-in users

We also have logs that contain IPs and user agents, but we only keep them for two weeks and only admins are allowed to access them. This is strictly so that our admin team can investigate problems internally as needed. This information is never something that we share with anyone else.

When it comes to the user data for people that have a role in your RebelMouse system, we collect the data that is entered for each user. For example, to create a user in RebelMouse, you will need to input their name, email address, permissions level, and possibly social media information like Facebook or Twitter pages. This data is stored in the system, but is not (outside of a publicly available bio page) something that is made public or shared in any way by us.

Additionally, you have the option to ban a user if they should no longer have access to your system. This removes the ability of a user to access the platform in any way, but it does retain their information in case a situation arises where a user that was banned needs to be restored.

If you have any questions, please contact your account manager or email support@rebelmouse.com.

Google Made Major Changes to Its Formula for Page Speed. Here’s What to Do About It in 2022.

Make sure your site is set up for success in 2022.

In the spring of 2020, Google let the world know that its Core Web Vitals would become the new benchmark for measuring a site's performance in its search results, known as the page experience update. Fast forward to more than a year later in August 2021 when, after much anticipation, Google's page experience update became official.

Since its rollout, developers have felt the impact of how their publishing platforms stack up against the new standard. Important decisions around the architecture of your site can now make or break your site's performance in the eyes of Google.

HTTP Archive, a tracking platform that crawls the web to identify trends and record historical patterns, has revealed how top content management systems (CMS) have weathered the page experience update through the creation of its Core Web Vitals Technology Report. RebelMouse consistently outperforms major CMS platforms on Google's most critical metrics since its rollout and into 2022:

Getting superior scores on Google's performance benchmarks isn't easy, either. The Ahrefs blog analyzed Core Web Vitals data from the Chrome User Experience Report (CrUX), which is data from actual Chrome users, to see how the web stacks up against Core Web Vitals. Their study found that only 33% of sites on the web are passing Core Web Vitals.

data from Ahrefs tracked on a line chart finds that shows only 33% of sites on the web pass Google's Core Web Vitals From Ahrefs.

Luckily, performing well on Core Web Vitals is possible with thoughtful, strategic changes to your site’s codebase. Here's what you need to know and how we can help.
