They do not meet the minimum requirements for a TRUSTe seal. They track too much (real time) data about a user like mouse movements and moments inaction on the page. Quite invasive and It doesn't do anything good for me so I'll block their scripts and give them a yellow "it is suspicious" rating.

Provides online content and collects information. Sites won't work properly without it. Allow

FIRST: I want to start off by saying those of you who report this site as "Malware or Viruses" are *ABUSING WOT* Nothing in your comments even support this fact, when in fact it is not true at all, and you know it!
SECOND: On to my review that actually follows the guidelines:
This website has it's pros and cons.
Pros: You're not at any real risk of danger. The site gathers detailed information about your browsing habits. The web-master/designers of a website can then use this data to tailor the website to best accommodate those who visit the site. (Example if half the visitors use mobile devices in Russia, and half use Firefox in America, a website can be designed to fit both platforms and provide English and Russian versions of the site.)
Cons: Some of those Pros can also be viewed as cons. While the service does not collect any personal data about you, it does collect *very detailed* data on your browsing habits on the page. Some people might not want anyone to know how long they read something, their general region, or how far they've scrolled down on a page...
...but again, it's just browsing habits being collected. No real personal information is gathered. They're not getting your address, not even your state. And they're certainly not getting your name or anything personal.
Yes, they get detailed browsing habits on a site that uses this website's service, but you're in terms of Privacy, you're not really giving away much. I see a several people making a mountain out of a mole-hill with this service.
Final result, this site/service is NOT a real privacy risk, and other than allowing web-developers to tailor their sites to give users a better experience, (What else do you think they're going to do with the information?) it poses no threat.

I used to always believe I knew exactly what my blog readers were clicking on and what exactly they were watching on my site. It is easy for publishers to drink their own kool aid and believe they always know what is going to be a hit and what isn't. Chartbeat for me is a godsend. It has allowed me to really figure out exactly what my readers are doing and what they want. I only wish they had a better tutorial system.
