Privacy Policy

18 November 2019

To sum up
Privacy policies are quite long and nobody reads them, so, just to sum up the information contained, PocketMoney GmbH (“we” or “us”) would like to ensure that it is not in the business of selling its users’ data, and has developed its products and services taking care of the privacy of its users. We generate our revenues through advertising displayed on the free application and through pay subscriptions, full stop.
As general rule, we do not access or collect the data of your transactions, we do only collect the minimum data we need to offer you the products and services, in addition to some generic anonymized metrics.
The following privacy policy explains in details which data are collected to offer our products and services, and, by using such products and services, you consent to our collection and use of such information as described in this Privacy Policy.

1. Application: PocketMoney

1.1 Transactions
All user’s transactions are stored locally on its device and neither we or other third parties have access to them. However, in certain situations, user’s data could be copied on third party servers if the user decides to use one the following optional services:

a) iCloud: if a user performs a backup of its device using iCloud Backup, or chooses in PocketMoney’s settings to opt for storing / synchronizing its data using iCloud, then PocketMoney will copy the entire database on the user iCloud account, which is managed by Apple. This is meant to give a user the possibility to backup and synchronize its own data, so, as such, it is just an option and it is not mandatory to use PocketMoney.
Information stored in iCloud is not managed by us, and is treated in accordance with Apple Privacy Policy, which is possible to find at the following address: http://www.apple.com/legal/privacy/.

1.3 Analytics
To better understand how to improve the product and services, we do collect some generic analytics. These analytics are anonymized, and consolidated, they have nothing to do with the content of financial transactions, and do not allow us to trace a single user or personal related information. Examples of such analytics are: global number of devices per subscription, total number of users per country, global number of app launches, global number of users per device, total number of users backing up using iCloud, total number of users backing up using Dropbox, etc. The analytics are stored in our server hosted by Hostpoint AG, and the data is treated in accordance with Hostpoint Privacy Policy, which is possible to find at the following address: https://www.hostpoint.ch/en/hostpoint/contact-gc.html#datenschutz.
