Another one of our values is “building trust with transparency.” In living that value, we are sharing with you, our community, that we have earned €780.00 in revenue so far from the Hotjar account in question, and will put that money to good use:
We will donate the full €780.00 (roughly $920) we earned, plus an additional €50,000 (roughly $59,000) of our own, to fight racism and injustice. Back in 2017, we pledged 1% of Hotjar’s revenue to giving back to our community, and this donation will come out of that fund.
We generally don’t disclose publicly any information about accounts we terminate, but in this case we feel we owe it to our community to explain where we stand in such a polarizing time. We also want to take the opportunity to invite other tech companies to honor their values and take a firm stance against hate and racism.
