Quality Assurance & Engineering Data
If a Pitchsmart presentation encounters an internal error, (such
as a failure to connect to a messaging server) the presentation
automatically makes a report to our Quality Assurance and Engineering
teams. This report may be in the form of an email or as a post to
a database. The report includes the date and time of the error,
a description of the error, and the environment in which the presentation
is running. It may also include application variables and system
configuration information, or other data necessary to understand
and solve program and network problems.

system metrics about our user base, to alert us to network outages,
