HoursTracker Privacy Policy

This policy applies to all information collected or submitted on the HoursTracker app for iPhone and any other devices and platforms.

Information we collect

The data you enter into HoursTracker, such as your jobs or time entries, stays on your device and in any personal backups you create, such as a cloud backup of your phone. This information is not collected by us or transmitted to us or to any other party besides the company where your backups are stored (e.g. Apple iCloud, or Google), and we do not have access to any of it unless you decide to sign up for the HoursTracker Cloud service.

If you do sign up for HoursTracker Cloud, we will send the username and password you choose to sign up with to HoursTracker Cloud in order to identify you and your data. Data may then be uploaded from your device to HoursTracker Cloud systems in accordance with the HoursTracker Cloud Privacy Policy.

Location Data

If you opt into HoursTracker's Location Awareness features, HoursTracker will use your location to enable features such as automatic clock in and clock out when you arrive and depart the location set up for each Job. Your location will be used even while you are not using HoursTracker, but HoursTracker does not save or share your live location. HoursTracker uses the live location to compare it to the job's location and radius. If your live location is within the job's location area, HoursTracker may clock in that job automatically, depending on your chosen options. HoursTracker will record that the clock in occurred due to the live location being within the job's location area, but it does not record your actual live location. If you choose to upload data to our optional HoursTracker Cloud service, that data will include the locations you set for each job, but no live locations from your device.

Ads and analytics

HoursTracker Free Edition displays advertising from Google Admob. Google Admob uses your advertising identifier (iOS Advertising ID or Android Advertising ID) to serve personalized ads based on the users interests (which includes collecting and analyzing user data). For more details on what Google Admob collects and uses, refer to Google's privacy policy.

You can reset your advertising identifier on iOS and Android. Additionally, Google Admob allows you to opt-out of personalized advertising. Note that if you upgrade from Free Edition to Personal Edition or better, no ads will be displayed and data will no longer be shared with Google Admob.

HoursTracker also collects aggregate, anonymous statistics, such as the percentage of users who use particular features or which system software version they are using, to help improve the app.

Information Usage

We use the information we collect to operate and improve our website, apps, and customer support.

We do not share personal information with outside parties except to the extent necessary to accomplish HoursTracker's functionality. We may share anonymous, aggregate statistics with outside parties, such as how many time entries are created per month in the app.

Your Consent

By using our app, you consent to our privacy policy.
