What personal data we collect and why we collect it

Here’s an overview of the data we collect and store:
  1. The app automatically saves all user provided information to our server. For example task, project and client names, hourly rates. This is done to provide data backups and the ability to log-in to multiple devices.
  2. We also automatically save general info such as your device type, OS version, when you last used the app and when you first installed. This is used to help us improve application performance and resolve issues.
  3. We track some in-app-events. For example whether or not you’ve selected the automation feature or which pages you’ve seen. We use this information to help us improve the app, by understanding how people use it.
  4. An anonymized ‘advertising id’ which represents your device. This ‘id’ is used for advertising attribution. You can opt out of ad tracking by going opening up Settings on your device, ‘Google Services -> Ads -> Opt out of Ads Personalization’.

Third-party services

We use third-party services to provide you with quality service. Each has their own privacy policy:
  1. Firebase; Firebase is a Google-owned service which provides our database, error & event tracking and authentication. It complies with GDPR and strict security standards. You can read more about their privacy policy here: https://firebase.google.com/support/privacy/

How do I opt out and delete all of my stored information?

Unfortunately, the app requires the mentioned data to properly function. If you want to opt out of data collection, please use the ‘help’ feature in the app to send us a message requesting deletion of your information. After sending that message go ahead and uninstall the app.
Once we receive your request, we’ll remove your information from our server and will send you a confirmation within a reasonable amount of time.

How long do you retain data?

We will retain user-provided data for as long as you use the application and for a reasonable time after. We will retain automatically collected information for up to 24 months and thereafter may store it in aggregate.

Children

We do not use the application to knowingly solicit data from or market to children under the age of 13. If a parent or guardian becomes aware that his or her child has provided us with information without their consent, he or she should contact us from inside the app (see ‘How do I opt out and delete all of my stored information’). We will delete such information from our files within a reasonable time.

Security

We are concerned about safeguarding the confidentiality of your information. We provide physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to protect the information we process and maintain. For example, we limit access to this information to authorized employees and contractors who need to know that information in order to operate, develop or improve our application. Please be aware that, although we endeavor to provide reasonable security for information we process and maintain, no security system can prevent all potential security breaches.

Changes

This Privacy Policy may be updated from time to time for any reason. We will notify you of any changes to our Privacy Policy by posting the new Privacy Policy here and informing you via email, from inside the application or on our website. You are advised to consult this Privacy Policy regularly for any changes, as continued use is deemed approval of all changes.

Your Consent

By using the application, you are consenting to our processing of your information as set forth in this Privacy Policy now and as amended by us. “Processing” means using cookies on a computer/handheld device or using or touching information in any way, including, but not limited to, collecting, storing, deleting, using, combining and disclosing information. This activity may take place anywhere around the world (due to our use of global cloud services), however, most often it will take place in the United States. If you reside outside the United States your information will be transferred, processed and stored there under United States privacy standards.
