What information is collected?
- Timers does not collect any personal information. All information related to timers created in the app is kept on the device and is not transmitted. Furthermore, the “read the contents of your SD card” permission the app asks for is required only for being able to play specific ringtones on devices when timers are triggered and is never used to read any personal or personally identifiable information in device storage.
- Log data is collected in the case of errors in the app, such as crashes or situations where the app stops responding. This log data may include information such as your device’s Internet Protocol (“IP”) address, device name, operating system version, app configuration when the error occurred, the time and date of the error occurrence, the stack trace, and other statistics.
What is the information used for?
- Log data collected from the app is useful in diagnosing why errors occur and will help to improve the experience of using the app overall. However, reporting errors is completely voluntary and you are free, of course, to not report errors when prompted after an app crash.
Is any information disclosed to outside parties?
- Log data collected from the app is sent through Google’s Android developer services.
This app used to be ad-supported, but no longer includes the Admob ad framework mostly because ads are terrible and Admob is closed source, proprietary and an absolute pain to work with.
I was planning to open source this app, but I'm really just not happy enough with the source code. If you use this app and really want to examine its source code, then please contact me and I will consider it.
If there are any policy changes they will be posted on this page.
