Great news: in order to work, DaisyDisk doesn’t need to collect your personal data, and we try really hard to avoid that as much as we can. It’s just a disk tool, after all! 😀
That said, some user identification is still needed for things like license management, and we want to be clear about what data we need and why.
Personal data we use
None of the above data is exposed online or passed to third parties, we use it solely for our internal functions.
Marketing communication (optional)
If you grant us separate consent, we’ll add your email address and name to our mailing list and will occasionally send you notices about promos and time-limited discounts for our products. Besides, once in a while, we may send some hand-picked third-party deals, which we arrange with fellow Mac developers. You can unsubscribe from any or all our emails at any moment, using the unsubscribe link in each email. Let’s keep in touch! 😉
Our online advertising
Just like any other online business we have to buy ads on other websites, particularly on Facebook, Twitter and Google Seach. To make our ad budget more efficient, we want to target our ads only to people who already visited our website. This technique is called “remarketing” and works using another cookie. Similar to Google Analytics, whenever you visit our website, a randomly generated, anonymous user ID is saved in your browser and also passed to Facebook, Twitter and Google. When you afterwards visit Facebook, Twitter or Google Search, they will look up the cookie in your browser and therefore find out whether you have been on our website, and are therefore eligible for our ads on their platform.
Google, Facebook and Twitter in this case act as third-party “data processor”, which means they get anonymous user data from us, but they guarantee (using a special agreement) not to reduce the privacy promise we’re making to our own customers. The data is not exposed online and is used only for our business functions.
If you are in the EU, we will ask your consent before saving any tracking cookies in your web browser (as required by the GDPR).
Accepting payments from you
How long do we keep your data?
Because we sell lifetime licenses for our apps, we also keep the data without limitation in time, unless you ask us to forget about you.
Can we forget about you?
Sure, if you want your data to be removed from our records, just send us a request to firstname.lastname@example.org. In response, we can send you all your data that we have and/or remove it from our database.
Who are that “we” after all?
We are Software Ambience Corp., an international company registered in Panama, with headquaters in Kyiv, Ukraine. Please feel free to get in touch with us via email@example.com if you have any questions! 😎
