For the purpose of this agreement, the terms "we", "us", "our" refers to dennisbabkin.com, the company that provides the service, and "I", "you", "your", "yours" refers to the user of the Time Sheet - Small Office Tools. The term "service", or "services" refers to the outcome of using the software code and application provided by the Time Sheet - Small Office Tools.
Should you have any questions or concerns regarding the use of the Time Sheet - Small Office Tools, please consider contacting us at dennisbabkin.com/contact first. By downloading and/or installing, or using the Time Sheet - Small Office Tools you are implicitly agreeing to the terms of this document.
The following may be collected during the operation of the Time Sheet - Small Office Tools:
Anything that is not expressly outlined in the section above is not collected by the Time Sheet - Small Office Tools. This includes any "covert", or "behind the scenes" collection and transmission of data while the service is running. In its pristine condition the service is intended to expressly display a user notification and ask for further permission to transmit the collected information outside of the local computer where the service is installed and running.
During the course of its operation, the Time Sheet - Small Office Tools stores the data it works with on the local disk. While being stored on disk, some of the information may be "scrambled" to prevent a casual observer from gaining unauthenticated access to the data. It is important to note that by the term "scrambled" we do not mean "encrypted" which in turn implies that safeguarding the data file on your local disk is your responsibility.
During the course of its operation, the Time Sheet - Small Office Tools allows users to authenticate access to some of the data the service works with using passwords. While providing access to password-protected data the service is NEVER intended to store passwords in the plaintext form, and to always scrub (or delete) plaintext passwords out of memory as soon as it is done converting them into secure cryptographic hashes. The service is never intended to save (or offload) plaintext passwords to disk. The service employs adequate encryption methods to safeguard provided user passwords. The following technical details outline the process:
Desktop version of the Time Sheet - Small Office Tools does not use third-party links or affiliate programs. The version of the service downloaded from the Windows Store may use affiliate links associated with the Windows Store. Refer to the Microsoft data collection policy for further information.
As noted above, the Time Sheet - Small Office Tools is a locally installed service that was not intended to collect and offload any of your information to our servers. That being said, there are following exceptions:
None of the information collected by the Time Sheet - Small Office Tools during its operation will be used for marketing purposes. You pay for your use of the service by purchasing its license.
You are fully empowered to do so. By uninstalling the Time Sheet - Small Office Tools, the service is intended to completely scrub (or delete) all of its files, including the generated data file(s). The exception of this rule is the following: A) Diagnostic event log that was collected during the operation of the service. By its nature, such log is stored in the Windows Event Log that is shared by all software on your local system. To remove all entries from the log generated by the service open Windows Event Viewer by running eventvwr command as administrator. Then go to Windows Logs -> Application and select "Clear Log." Then confirm by clicking "Clear." B) Any submissions that you made via email to our support team. You may request us to delete all of your submitted information by going to dennisbabkin.com/contact page.
