Episerver Find

Collecting data

Indexing

The data that is collected in Episerver Find is by default the same data as being stored in the CMS/Commerce database. Data collected by Episerver Find should not include any PII data.

Statistics

Collecting statistics about searched and clicked data can be done through Episerver Find. An API for excluding data that matches patterns will be developed, to prevent PII data from being stored in statistics.

Consent

Episerver Find checks the Do Not Track (DNT) header on the request to check if statistics should be track for a user. The DNT functionality will be overridable soon, to make it possible for partners to build their own "Do not track" implementation.
