What is RescueTime's approach to privacy and personal data, considering GDPR
The following content is borrowed from our blog post on this subject:
At RescueTime, we think a lot about how we handle and process information.
For the past 10 years, we’ve built a business on helping people better understand their personal data. With hundreds of thousands of active users depending on us to help them optimize their personal efforts, we know the only way this works is if there’s trust that we’re doing our job both ethically and proficiently while protecting your data.
To be clear: from the start, we’ve always had a strict never-share, delete-when-asked, let-you-export data policy for our users. We are a business with a product, and have never had any ad supported business of any kind.
With the new European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) going into effect at the end of this month, I thought it would be a good opportunity to talk about just how RescueTime handles your data, our philosophy around data, and some changes we’ve made to give you more control over the data we process for you.
