The RDF and SPARQL sends metric data and you can opt-out anytime Metric data is a small piece of information to tell what's happening and which features are used or unused. Data is sent in the form of events. An event is sent when something happens, e.g. when a file with a .ttl extension is opened or a SPARQL query is executed.
You can opt-out from sending metric data. Go to Settings → Appearance & Behaviour → RDF and SPARQL → Uncheck "Send anonymous usage statistics". The state of the checkbox is stored in the IDE.
Where is the data sent? The data is sent to an account dedicated to the RDF and SPARQL in Mixpanel. The data is never shared with anyone else.
What is not sent? No personal information is sent.
This means that data like your hostname, your login name, your own name, SPARQL endpoints you connect to, or file names are never sent. Mixpanel usually sends the IP address, but this has been disabled for the RDF and SPARQL.
What is sent? Data is sent in the form of events. Each event has a name and a set of properties (name and value). The events are sent to learn what's happening on a global scale, there is no way to identify a specific user based on a set of events.
The following section shows exactly what's sent. This list displays the data, which is used by the latest public release of the RDF and SPARQL.
Not many companies provide such a detailed list. We strongly dislike tracking, but we need some data to make sure the RDF and SPARQL is developing in the right direction. We try to be very open about what's going on under the hood.
