This page describes how we (as the people behind Daily) handle the privacy of our users and their data. We believe that the data of our users is none of our business. As a result, our products will never record user-specific and/or privacy-related information without explicitly asking the user. Data collected will be anonymised whenever possible and opting out is always possible whenever applicable.
Our app collects usage statistics using Visual Studio App Center. Statistics include usage information and (user) events. Data collected is anonymous and cannot be traced back to an individual person. Data is sent encrypted using a secure SSL connection. Additionally, our website collects visitor statistics using Google Analytics. Next to information automatically collected by this service, specific events might be collected anonymously.
If our app crashes, data about the crash will be collected and sent to our crash reporting mechanism (Visual Studio App Center) to help identify the cause of the crash so that we can try to fix it in a future update. These crash logs contain information about the state of the app, operating system, and device at the time of the crash. While crash logs are anonymous, they might include log events containing activity names. Crash logs are sent encrypted using a secure SSL connection.
Via various channels (including our app and website), users might be requested to sign up for our newsletter. If declined, no data will be sent. If accepted, the email address provided will be added to our email list, including other information you provided such as your name. Information related to your license is submitted too, including the license type and whether it automatically renews. Submitted information might be updated at certain moments, such as when your license changes. This information is used to make newsletters as valuable as possible based on your usage. Our email list is low volume (usually no more than a few messages a year), and is generally limited to announcements of important new (beta) versions of our app. We do not sell or otherwise provide our email list to third-parties, with the exception of the company that provides the mailing list services (MailChimp). Subscription to our email list occurs via a secure SSL connection. Opting out is always possible.
Daily uses a license validation service hosted on our website to validate the license of a given copy of the app. Information submitted is limited to the receipt created and maintained by macOS. If a business license code is activated, information submitted also includes this code and the serial number of the device. A secure SSL connection is used during transmission. Our license validation service sends this information encrypted to Apple's servers using a secure SSL connection. Business Licenses-related information is submitted in an encrypted form to Chargebee. Email addresses supplied when activating business licenses are only stored for organisational purposes and are not used commercially.
By default our app logs events marked as warnings and errors. These log events are stored in a local log file. Daily can be configured to log all events, with the purpose of identifying and solving problems. Log events might be send to our crash reporting mechanism (Visual Studio App Center) in case a crash occurs. Our website collects logs when you interact with its server. This metadata may include your IP address, the name of the resource requested, and the name and version number of the software making the request. We generally don't look at these logs unless a server appears to be being maliciously used or attacked in some way.
