Privacy Policy

As a user of many apps and services myself, I take your personal privacy very seriously. This page gives some background about your data, where it is stored and how it is used.

Last updated: 12th July 2014.

 

My website is hosted by WordPress. They provide metrics about how many visits I get, referring pages, search terms, what pages were accessed and what external links were selected. None of this information is personalised, and I have no way of tracking it back to individual users.

By commenting on my posts or asking questions on my support pages, the contact details you provide are only ever used by me to respond to you as a user. I don’t keep a record of email addresses, or pass these on to any 3rd party. The same applies to users who subscribe to get notifications on posts and answers to questions.

 
Apps

The data you enter into my apps is kept local to your device, i.e. it is not sent anywhere outside of your control. Backups are saved on your device only, unless you choose to export them.

If you export backups or CSV/PDF files by email, you choose where they are sent.

If you use Dropbox, iCloud or SkyDrive, you are trusting your data to these external companies (Dropbox, Apple and Microsoft respectively). My apps just facilitate the copying.

Dropbox now provides metrics for apps accessing their services. I can see how many users have linked my apps to Dropbox, and how many API calls are made per day. None of this information is personalised, and I have no way of tracking it back to individual users.

Finally my Hill Lists app includes support for Google Maps, and Google provides metrics for geocoding requests and map accesses per day. Again, none of this information is personalised, and I have no way of tracking it back to individual users.

If you have any questions or concerns about any of this, please get in touch.
