What & Why: This policy describes how we collect, use, and handle your personal information when you use our websites, software, and services (“Services”). For more information and details, please see our Frequently Asked Questions page. We collect and use the following information to provide, improve, and protect our Services:
Account information: We collect, and associate with your account, the information you provide to us when you do things such as sign up for your account, add or amend invoices, e.g your name, email address, phone number, payment link, and physical address.
Your Content: Our Services are designed to make it simple for you to create and send invoices. To make this possible, we store, process, and transmit Your Content as well as information related to it. This related information includes things like dates, times, file sizes and other items deemed necessary to create and send an invoice. Our Services provide you with different options for sharing Your Content mainly via emailed pdf copies of the invoice and in Pro versions download of csv bulk copies of invoices.
Contacts: Each invoice is sent to a person or company per your generated content, they can of course remove their information should they wish by contacting you – and you are obliged to remove if they request within 14 days unless you have a suitable usage policy or GDPR policy that dictates why you must maintain this information (e.g. tax records – though please note that Bill Appy should never be your sole way of detailing required tax information to relevant authorities, you should maintain a full set of accounts as required by your jurisdiction/ countries law)
Usage information: We collect information related to how you use the Services, including actions you take in your account (like emailing, editing, viewing, and deleting files). We use this information to improve our Services, develop new services and features, and protect Bill Appy users. More information on how we use this information can be obtained by contact us.
Device information: We also collect information from and about the devices you use to access the Services. This includes things like IP addresses, the type of browser and device you use, the web page you visited before coming to our sites, and identifiers associated with your devices. Your devices (depending on their settings) may also transmit location information to the Services.
Cookies and other technologies: We use technologies like cookies and pixel tags to provide, improve, protect, and promote our Services. For example, cookies help us with things like remembering your username for your next visit, understanding how you are interacting with our Services, and improving them based on that information. You can set your browser to not accept cookies, but this may limit your ability to use the Services. Due to the nature of our services if you choose not to accept cookies we can offer no support on any issues you experience as we have built our Service to be the best possible service using available technology (including cookies)

This evidence is kept for 1 year. Any request for restoration will be accommodated where possible however the normal license charge will be applied where applicable for the duration of time the service was offline but not accessible.
