Error Reports

Occasionally, Jigsaw Explorer's puzzle program might encounter an error caused by a bug in the browser, in a browser plug-in, or in the puzzle program itself. In those instances the puzzle program automatically sends error data in the background to the Errorception error tracking service. Our Support personnel can then examine the resulting error report and use the information it contains to determine the cause of the error and apply a fix to the puzzle program if needed. The error report contains information such as computer operating system version, browser brand and version, and log information showing the type and code location of the error as well as information regarding the state of the puzzle program leading up to the error. The error reports contain no personally identifiable information other than the user's IP address.

In the event of an error, the user's IP address is part of the error data sent to Errorception. The IP address is anonymized by Errorception so that it cannot be used to personally identify the user. Error data sent to Errorception is automatically deleted after 90 days. For more information see Errorception's privacy policy.
