This Privacy Policy describes how Focus Booster collects, uses, stores and secures the personal information you provide when using Focus Booster. It also describes your choices regarding use, access and correction of your personal information.

We may update this privacy policy from time to time by posting a new version on this web page. You should visit this page occasionally to ensure you agree with any changes.

By continuing to use Focus Booster after we post any such changes, you agree that you accept the new privacy policy.

Our commitment to privacy

We take your privacy seriously. This policy has been provided to explain how we process personal data and the rights you have to limit our use of your personal data.

Personal information is information about you, which would identify you and is not otherwise publicly available; for example your name, telephone number, email address or address. We’re proud to present this policy as representation of our efforts to protect your privacy and provide you with a great service.

The data we collect

This privacy policy applies to all personal data processed in Focus Booster, which typically includes pomodoro sessions along with any personal data used to create an account. We typically process:

  • Contact information (name and email address).
  • Geographic information (country, date locale and currency locale).
  • Unique identifiers (username and password).
  • Billing information (last 4 digits of a credit card number and expiry).
  • Client names and hourly rates (as added by you).
  • Session data (date, time started and duration as added or recorded by you).
  • Any other type of data we may ask to improve your education of how to use Focus Booster (job type, familiarity with the pomodoro technique).

As is true of most websites, we gather certain information automatically. This information may include Internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, Internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, the files viewed on our site (e.g., HTML pages, graphics, etc.), operating system, date/time stamp, and/or clickstream data to analyze trends and administer the site.

We use cookies or similar technologies to analyze trends, administer the website, track user's movements around the website, and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole. You can control the use of cookies at the individual browser level, but if you choose to disable cookies, it may limit your use of certain features or functions on our website or service.

Data use

The personal information as indicated being collected above is used for billing, identification, authentication, service improvement, research, and contact.

Information sharing

With service providers

We share personal data with our service providers, that process personal data on behalf of Focus Booster. Such third parties include those providing:

  • Internet hosting and infrastructure services.
  • Payment processing services.
  • Services for monitoring the performance of our web services.
  • Customer support software.

We require that third parties maintain at least the same level of confidentiality that we maintain for personal data. Focus Booster may be liable for the protection of your personal data that we transfer to our service providers, except to the extent that we are not responsible for the event giving rise to any unauthorized or improper processing.

With third parties

Other than service providers, we will never share your data with anyone else unless required by law.

With public authorities or law enforcement

In certain situations, we may be required to disclose personal data in response to lawful requests by public authorities, including to meet national security or law enforcement requirements.

We may also disclose your personal information as required by law, such as to comply with a subpoena or other legal process, when we believe in good faith that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights, when we believe there is a violation to our Terms of Service, protect your safety or the safety of others, investigate fraud, or respond to a government request.

If Focus Booster is involved in a merger, acquisition, or sale of all or a portion of its assets, you will be notified via email and/or a prominent notice on our website, of any change in ownership, uses of your personal information, and choices you may have regarding your personal information.

Security

To prevent unauthorized access, to maintain the accuracy of your personal data, and to ensure that you’re in control of your personal data, we have put in place appropriate physical, technical, and administrative controls to safeguard and secure the personal data we process.

All payments and payment data submitted on our site is handled through Stripe.

We restrict access to personal information to a small group of Focus Booster employees who need to know that information in order to operate, develop or improve our service. These individuals are bound by confidentiality obligations and may be subject to discipline, including termination and criminal prosecution, if they fail to meet these obligations.

Children's privacy

No part of our website is structured to attract anyone under 13.

Erasing, accessing and updating your personal data

If we process your personal data, your Focus Booster profile and preference settings enable you to:

  • Update and correct your personal data.
  • Delete all your personal data that we process on your behalf (by deleting your account).

When you delete your account, we do the following;

  1. Immediately, securely archive all data associated with your account (including personal details and session data), so it can no longer be accessed.
  2. After 30 days, securely and comprehensively delete the archive.

The reason for the 30-day delay before deleting your account is to allow for a change of mind. If you would prefer we delete your account immediately please email us using the contact details at the end of this page.

Additionally, if we process your personal data, you may have the right to ask that we limit our processing of your personal data, and you may have the right to object to our processing of your personal data. You may also have the right to have your personal data exported in a commonly-used, machine-readable format. To exercise such rights, where applicable, please contact us using the information in the How to Contact Us section of this privacy policy.

Who owns your data

You own the data associated with your account. Focus Booster provides the application for you to record, store and report on that data. You can download all the data you have created in Focus Booster using the session report export at any time.
