Privacy Policy

Details of the small amount of data collected by this website and the apps I publish.

Browsing the website

Browsing michelf.ca does not install cookies or other tracking identifiers. IP addresses, requested paths, and user agent strings sent as part of HTTP requests are kept in server logs for one month for diagnostic purposes and to create general statistics about website usage.

Data collected on the website is hosted by a third party provider that can access the data if necessary for diagnostic and problem resolution purposes related to hosting.

Apps

No user data is collected while using the apps.

For apps downloaded via this website (and not the App Store), and only those apps having an auto-update mechanism:

The app checks for updates automatically once a week (unless disabled in Preferences). Checking for updates will occasionally send anonymous data about computer technical specifications used to compile statistics about the user base to help refine future versions of the app. Checking for updates will also send the current version number of the application alongside a token derived from the license code to evaluate update eligibility and verify the correct usage of each license.

Purchases & Licenses

Invoices are retained in order to comply with the law and to allow sending license code reminders to the associated email address or offer upgrade pricing to returning customers.

Credit and debit cards are processed by a third party (Stripe) who will get the necessary information for processing the payment. This includes your card information, your billing address, and the total amount on the invoice.

If you make a purchase from the website or perform other actions related to app licensing (creating new licenses codes, requesting license reminders) this event is logged to allow for diagnosing problems and for detection of suspicious activity. This data includes a description of the event, including the name and email address provided, alongside the requesting IP address.

Purchases on the App Store are governed by Apple’s own privacy policy instead of this one. Apple only share general statistics about sales and app usage with developers.
